Stay overnight at the House of Light, a modern-built traditional Japanese house and experiential artwork by American artist James Turrell. Turrell created the piece for the first Echigo-Tsumari Art Trienniale in 2000. The Light Bath bathroom is installed with fiber optic lighting for a special bathing experience, and the Outside In Japanese-style room has a square sky window from which you can enjoy the changing color of the sky. The house presents a unique point of view that fuses contemporary light art and traditional Japanese design.
