ROOM 103 Yuki


In winter the errly mornings,It is beautiful indeed when snow has fallenduring the night,but splendid too when the ground is white with frost;or even when there in no snow or frost,but it is simply very cold and the attendantshurry from room to roomstirring up the firesand bringing charcoal,how well this fits the seasons mood!
But as noon approaches and the cold wears off,no one bothers to keep the braziers alight,and soon nothing remains but piles of white ashes.

ROOM 104 Inari


ROOM 204 Sakura


In spring it is the dawn that is most beatiful.
As the light creeps over the hills,their outlines are dyed a faint red and wisps of purplish cloud trail over them.

ROOM 304 coco


In summer the nights.
Not only when the moon shines,but on dark nights too,as the fireflies flit to and fro,and even when it rains,
how beatiful it is!

ROOM 305 Katsura


ROOM 404 Torii


Inautumn the evenings,when the glittering sun skins close to the edge of the hills and the crows fly back to their nests in threes and foura and twos:more charming still is a file of wild geese,like specks in the distantsky.
Then the sun has set,ones heart is moved by the sound of the wind and the hum of the insects.
