some more japan photos from march/april.
these are from a trip to art island naoshima,
with a great stopover in the international villa in okayama.
top photo above is poster of the excellent naoshima sento.
the name of which is a play on words, I♥湯 ("i love yu")
we had the villa to ourselves - amazing.
traditional thatched roof country house
in an isolated country village,
the quietest atmosphere i have ever experienced in japan.
but we think the place might be haunted.
all photos by julian patterson again.
cast iron bathtub in villa. called goemonburo, with slightly macabre etymology
sleeping zones at villa
we were hoping this was a summertime bar.
but kind of even better if just someone's house.
