Room 204 | 304
Created by Yuji Kamiyama
A Room of Light in the Snowfield
Not recommended for guests with small children.
Artist Yuji Kamiyama built this room in the motif of an igloo (snow house) atop a “Hyo-bo” (ice cap).
This is a neutral space sheltered from the bustle of Tokyo. Take a moment to contemplate the fact that you are a “traveler”, and immerse yourself in the new memories, sceneries, and dreams that you have gathered during your trip.
Covering the floor with icy resin and unifying the entire room in white and transparent materials, the artist has stimulated a frozen world.
The igloo, represented by transparent frames, creates a sense of enclosure and isolation from the rest of the world.
Please enjoy the beauty and tranquility of a world that seems to stand alone in a snowy field.

About the artist
Born in Tokyo in 1983.
After graduating from Tama Art University, Yuji Kamiyama joined an advertising production company, and later began his career as a freelance art director in 2009.
The artist’s retro-future color, texture usage, and composition are influenced by various forms of entertainment such as comics, games, and music that he was exposed to in his childhood. Ueyama’s unique use of vivid, eye-opening colors and motifs is pop, surreal, and melancholy, and leaves a strong impression on the viewer.
