Location:Tsubaki no Yu Wall surface Duration:from Apr 10, 2014〜Jun 30,2017 Time:All day long 2014

This three-dimensional sculptural interpretation of the ancient egret legend that recounts the origin of the hot springs appeared as a wall relief in Tsubaki no Yu. The unusual relief, resembling a child’s toy, jumped out from the wall in a wondrous way, presenting a unique imaginary interpretation edged with animals and plants not found in the original story.
