The Japanese Tea-ceremony room        "Seiseijaku-an"           in France

An introduction:
I carried materials from Japan and I was accompanied by a craftsman and built the tea-ceremony room which could be said to be the accumulation of the Japanese culture in the suburbs of France/Paris.
It usually took construction periods for three months, but I realized it in three weeks by performing an epoch-making panel unit and a new method of construction.

A panel unit became it and developed the new how to structure and planned shortening and low cost for term of works and erected a new tea-ceremony room in the Paris suburbs.
The tea-ceremony room individualizes existence in the quietness that cannot think to be France.
We carried the plaster / wood of Kochi, the reed of Lake Biwa-ko to the spot and ordered the reed of the minute that I ran out of from Germany.
The craftsmen whom I made a voyage to by Japan, and performed a great deed to build a tea-ceremony room in three weeks.
