Mitsui Fudosan Group



Our gallery rooms are themed “Grove of the Shrine” (Past), “Water” (Present), and “Light” (Future).


Record T39

Hishida Yuichiro

One of our featured monuments represents “Time”. As you gaze at this twisted loop of rusty rebar, you’ll get a sense of the passage of time. This piece stands as a symbol of our gallery room, “Grove of the Shrine”. The coiled metal is similar to a tree’s bark. The recycled rebar was once used in construction and contains the memories of its former building.


Hongo Yoshiya

This tangible piece is dedicated to “Light”. It utilizes the dull luster of aluminum to project memories of place and atmosphere. The work combines the inseparable aspects of “Light” and “Shadow”. Through this amalgam of “Light” and “Shadow”, you could say that “Light” represents the future, “Shadow” the past, and the main body of the work stands for the present.

The Recollection of Silence and Light

Iwasaki Hirosumi

This production blends the themes of “Time” and “Light”. The rusted texture of the piece will give you a sense of time and the work’s shadows make “Light” tangible. The artwork is a single unit, but also combines a bit of improv using recycled wood from a restaurant as its pedestal.

Jingu Pool - green wall


A conceptual artwork showcasing the rubble from an original shrine pool. When the hotel was constructed, the pool was disassembled. Today, the pieces sandwich a line of glass to increase the contrast of roughness between the two. It serves as a way to experience the accumulated memories of what once was.
