A window: Zuiho-in, Daitokuji, Kyoto

Daitokuji, Kyoto sightseeing

This is a window in a teahouse.

The mild light comes into the room through a filter of thin paper, shoji, and lattice of bamboo and ashi, just like a reed.

The whiteness of thin paper is remarkably contrasted with the black of the lattice shadow on a screen of thin paper. Thin paper makes the light mild and the light makes the lattice silhouetted.

This window is not only for taking in the light, but also enjoying the light through the thin paper and the lattice.
