The studio is in a very rural area in Fukuoka Prefecture, yet it is not too far to go to the city when needed. Artists work surrounded by rice fields, mountains and the sea. Artists may also feel free to have fresh eggs from our chickens every day.
We have a thriving creative community in the studio, with many local people of all ages coming every other day to learn or work on their projects. They are usually very open and supportive to guest artists.
