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!

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…

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!

Lunchtime!

I didn’t expect the restaurant to be as nice as it was

 photo DSC_8890.jpg
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

 photo DSC_0394.jpg
But the view!

 photo DSC_8984.jpg
I lied, this was the last tree house… maybe my favorite!

Looking up

I would love to visit Kizaki again and see what new art I can find!
