Japanese Angel

No.29 by Yuki Ninagawa

The 29th artist room “Japanese Angel” was started on production by Yuki Ninagawa on November 28, 2016 and completed on December 21, 2016.

Ninagawa had painted the room based on the image of a beautiful Japanese angel descending and dancing among roses. Barababy and Baraluna, original characters created by Ninagawa, are drawn here and there on the room walls.

Park Hotel Tokyo hopes that guests will enjoy the serene and feminine work in Artist Room Japanese Angel.


Staff recommendation comment

How about spending an elegant moment in our Artist Room Queen Japanese Angel filled with blooming roses and Japanese angels? The artist Ms. Ninagawa says, “the rose is often considered a Western flower, but in Japan, single-flowered roses called Ibara and Ubara have been flowering before Western contact.” The rose, also known as the queen of flowers, is often considered a symbol of love and beauty. It has been used since ancient times as a flower to convey feelings to loved ones. In this room, roses in red and pink are painted all over the walls. A beautiful Japanese angel, wearing a thin feathered robe, stares at us with a gentle expression. If you look closely, you can find some characters created by the artist, named Baraluna, a tiny unicorn, and Barababy, a cute creature wearing a rose crown, hiding somewhere in the room.
You can almost smell the roses as you enjoy the view of Tokyo Tower while relaxing in our Artist Room Queen Japanese Angel.

Artist's Message

Japanese Angel in Roses

Japanese angels are wearing a thin feathered costume called a hagoromo. A beautiful Japanese angel floated down to the earth where roses bloom. In Japan, from the time of the Manyoshu (the earliest existing anthology of Tanka poems, regarded as the starting point of Japanese culture and literature), there was a kind of single flowered briar rose called “ibara” or “ubara”. It is slightly different from the Western rose, quiet and quaint. There is also a haiku (a very short form of Japanese poetry) by Yosa Buson which goes: “Prey to melancholy, I climbed the hill and found briar roses in bloom”. I hope you spend a pleasant, comfortable time in this room where Japanese angels had floated down to. Everywhere you look, there is a character named Barababy and a unicorn named Baraluna.
Please try to find out how many of them there are in the Artist Room Japanese Angel.
