Artist's Description

A Japanese tea house is a special building designed for holding Japanese tea ceremonies. It is built using simple rustic materials and is usually surrounded by a small garden called a roji. The garden has an important function in preparing the guests for the Japanese tea ceremony.

Teahouses are generally small, and the floors are covered with tatami mats. These mats are made from tightly woven rice straw and have a covering of tightly woven rush grass that make a very smooth surface. The layout of the tatami mats changes according to the seasons. The Japanese do not wear shoes on tatami flooring.

All thedoors and windows in the teahouse are traditional shoji, which are made out of thin strips of balsa wood and covered in translucent Japanese paper, which allows light to pass through into the room.

I have added a bit of bling in mine just for effect.
