The inspiration for the interior design of this Japanese restaurant came from Ogata Kourin (1658-July 20, 1716) a Japanese painter and lacquerer. His work was characterized by careful composition, sense of rhythm, and gorgeous coloring. His brushwork was called Rinpa School, which became one of the major historical schools of Japanese decorative painting, and the decorative designs which resemble the work of Ogata Kourin were called “Kourin Monyo.”
The architects interpreted a round pattern of plants called “Kourin pattern,” which was designed by the famous painter in the Edo period, Ogata Kourin. The designs were used for textiles, lacquer work, ceramics and painting especially screens. Screens and perforation set the mood at this Japanese restaurant.
