Entry Description

We are inspired by a bamboo forest in Arashiyama, Kyoto. There is a path in the middle of the forest and you will feel at peace when you walk through the path while bamboos have rhythm and dynamism as if they were designed in principle of Japanese art.
So we tried to apply this feeling to the platform to be loved by everyone. Instead of bamboos, we used poles with Yusen kimono cloth dyed by hand and they show different expression at night with LED lightings inside. People love this beautiful scenery at night; we have succeeded to invite people at night to this area and helped a lot to keep the community alive.
