The Artist Room Zen was produced by calligrapher Seihaku Akiba under the concept of "a room
where people can find tranquility in an urban setting."
Akiba has scribed powerful Japanese characters on the room walls as if he was performing iainuki, the art of quick sword drawing.
Also placed in the room are paulownia wood boxes which represent the four seasons,
as well as tatami mats on which guests can sit and meditate, a practice known as zazen.
For many years the concept of zen has been attracting attention not only in Japan, but from people all over the world.
