On the wall of the alcove in “do/soil” room, there is a commissioned work by Tomoko Hayashi, a contemporary artist who uses soil from the Rakudoan site. Before the construction of Rakudoan began, she visited the site and collected soil.Using the soil, she created a work that expresses the atmosphere of this land as she sensed it. Only guests staying in this room can view the work.
