The Park Hotel in Tokyo is having artists come and spend some time in residence, under its "Artist in Hotel" program. Artist Naoki Takenouchi is painting his interpretations of "Fujin" and "Raijin," gods of wind and thunder, respectively, in a room now entitled "Japanese Paper Garden" for the sumi ink and washi paper used in his portrayals.
The hotel already has two other themed art rooms, one entitled "Sumo," the other "Zen."
What a cool idea. I'd love to stay in one of these one-of-a-kind rooms.
