Rokkakudo (Kitaibaraki City)
Rokkakudo was designed during the Meiji Era (1600 – 1868) by Tenshin Okakura, a forerunner of the Japanese modern art movement. Rokkakudo is a red hexagonal building and is also known as ‘Kanrantei’ or ‘place for viewing the ocean waves’. Both Tenshin and Taikan Yokoyama, a famous Japanese painter, spent significant periods of time contemplating around this area’s rocky coastline.
At present, Rokkakudo is open to the public under the supervision of Izura Institute of Arts & Culture, Ibaraki University.
