Mount Fuji

No.30 by Shiki Taira

The 30th Artist Room “Mount Fuji” was started by artist Shiki Taira on May 19, 2017 and completed on July 31, 2017.

#3110 is one of the rooms on the Tokyo Tower side, which has a larger window. On a clear day, you can see Mount Fuji in the distance.
“I wanted to create a room where guests will be surrounded by auspicious Japanese motifs”, says Taira. When you open the door and walk through the bright red gate entrance fashioned like a torii gate, you’ll see a variety of gods flying around in the sky above Mount Fuji. On the opposite wall is the Seven Lucky Gods on a treasure ship.

Please enjoy a happy stay, viewing 2 Mount Fujis and being surrounded by various Japanese gods.

Staff recommendation comment

If you think that looking at Mount Fuji from your room’s window is an unforgettable experience, what about having Mount Fuji inside your room?
I feel that the artist, Shiki Taira, wants to connect the guests with something sacred, as if for one night they are invited to be spectators of the otherworld, inhabited by gods. As the red walls of the room’s entrance are painted the same color as the torii gates, I imagine this as the access point to this otherworld. As soon as you pass through the door, you will find yourself suspended in the open sky, higher than the mountains, surrounded by clouds.The focus point is Mount Fuji, a sacred mountain from ancient times and believed to be home to many gods. Some of these gods such as Raijin (Thunder God), Fujin (Wind God) or the Shichifukujin (Seven Lucky Gods) stand out significantly, being illustrated in the center of the room, while other gods are drawn much smaller, scattered throughout different parts of the room or even hidden. Have fun exploring and discovering them all.
After sunset, try to pull back the curtains and experience how the paintings reflect off the wall onto the window, creating the illusion of seeing Mount Fuji and the other gods floating above the city’s nightscape.

Artist's Message

From this room, Mt. Fuji looks very beautiful, so I made Mt. Fuji the central theme, and I surrounded it with auspicious Japanese motifs.
When you open the door, and go through the bright red entrance fashioned like a torii gate, you see a variety of gods flying around in the sky. In the evening, the gods reflected in the windows really seem to be flying in the sky.
They are lucky Japanese motifs such as the Fujin (Wind God), Raijin (Thunder God), Shichifukujin (Seven Lucky Gods) and Ichimoku-sama (One-Eyed God), and although you can feel their strength, I decorated the room so that you can spend a quiet time here.

I hope that lots of wonderful happiness comes to all who stay in this room.
