Stylings of Yugawara
This is how many Japanese rooms are laid out. These are open spaces to fill with whichever accoutrements one sees fit at the time. Open up those sliding doors, though, and you’ll be greeted with futon, zabuton, tables, and much more to use at your pleasure.
There are 2 other rooms of more square dimensions and with a similar layout as the longer one. The first has a winding entryway with two pairs of sliding doors not perfectly aligned with each other. At first, they seemed a bit shoddy, but then I laughed to myself as I imagined a slightly aggressive architect intentionally designing it that way. I love that kind of stuff, and conducted pranks of a similar tact in my elementary school years.
The other room, a luxury suite, featured a more predictable layout. It has the best windowed cove of the 4 rooms, and a really stunning array of mid-to-late 90’s A/V technology. There’s a vacuum tube TV, an obnoxiously large stereo, and much more. Very retro!
