To make up for yesterday’s post, todays is full of pictures that I wish I had been able to include in my official blog post and just had way too many pictures to be able to add all of them. So take a look at the explanation of the art around Lake Kizaki and my day there, and then here are a bunch more pictures from the day!
Lake Kizaki, the unassuming center of a huge primitive art movement
A quick look through the forest shows natural growth, and natural art scattered around
I’m reminded a bit of the Blair Witch Project though…
A different kind of canopy
This bit was really cool
Moss and wood
Is it growing? I can’t tell!
Some beautiful fall colors around
And fall flowers on the other side of the lake
Today’s question: is it art or not?
Rice field planted in interesting ways
Inside some random dude’s storage barn… these are amazing!
Each piece centers around a basic item found in the storage barn, like an old umbrella or a wrench, then embellished
At a museum near the station
This is dirt. No, I mean, it’s MADE with dirt! Different colors of dirt turned to paint! I was speechless!
Look at this!
Who comes up with this? But the result is amazing!
I didn’t expect the restaurant to be as nice as it was
But I probably should have considering where I was!
Another old storage place
Delicate porcelain leaves
Up to the mountains at the base of the Alps (which you can’t see due to the clouds, I literally jumped when I saw them looming later on)
Tree houses, a forest of them! I could have stayed in one, but it would have been cold…
One last tree house on the edge of a cliff
But the view!
I lied, this was the last tree house… maybe my favorite!
I would love to visit Kizaki again and see what new art I can find!
