Description

Interior view of Japanase house looking out into a garden. In the foreground, to the left, we can see a small portion of a paper sliding wall called a shōji. Further along we see another pair of sliding doors that are red and white. In the center right we see bright green and pink colors describing the vibrant outdoors. In the center of the open door to the outside, we see a grey garden sculpture.
