Chashitsu 茶室 (Teahouses)
- Chashitsu 茶室 (Teahouses)
Photobook. One volume. First edition.
- Made in: Tokyo-to
A superb publication of famous teahouses throughout Japan, most of them not accessible to the general public. Includes two designated National Treasures (kokuho - the Tai-an teahouse at Myoki-an, and the En-nan teahouse of the Yabunouchi School), as well as sixteen buildings that are Important Cultural Treasures (juyo bunkazai). Due to their restricted space and the subdued light tea-houses are notoriously difficult to photograph, but Hayashi manages to impart a sense of the deep serenity enveloping these places. The present is his first architectural monograph. Only one copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
