We’ve spoke at length about the modern architecture of Tokyo but the city has been around for a few centuries. It therefore also houses older buildings, such as the Imperial Palace and many historical temples and parks. The districts of Asakusa and Ueno are the old part of the city. In Asakusa, you can find the most widely visited Buddhist temple in Japan, Senso-ji. Other sights, which are worth mentioning include the Hie Shrine – a Shinto shrine from the 15th century, Kiyomizu Kannon-do – a Buddhist temple built in 1631, Meiji Shrine and Tomioka Hachiman Shrine. Respect for nature has always been a vital element of Japanese culture, which is reflected in the local architecture. One of its characteristics is the love of free space and asymmetry. Buildings and shrines typical of the Far East culture look absolutely gorgeous in the form of Tokyo canvas prints. The capital of Japan is the city of historic sites and artefacts, which make for stunning wall decoration designs, especially in interiors inspired by the Eastern styles.
Japanese-style décor usually features light rooms, tatami mats on the floor, low tables and natural materials, such as stone, wood and paper. Canvas prints depicting historic landmarks or Japanese nature will be a perfect match for spaces decorated in this style. After all, Japan is known as “the Land of the Cherry Blossoms” and we made sure that our canvas print do justice to the breathtakingly beautiful parks and gardens of Tokyo!
As you probably already know, Japan is an insular country. Tokyo itself spans several islands and is divided by a network of rivers. This is exactly the reason why the city boasts so many beautiful bridges! The most famous of them would probably be the Rainbow Bridge. It’s white pylons are covered with lamps that illuminate the structure with a blaze of colours every single night. What’s more, the entire system uses solar energy collected during the day. Another famous Tokyo landmark is the so-called Dino Bridge, which got its name due to the characteristic shape that resembles a dinosaur skeleton. These examples of Japanese architecture make for amazing canvas print motifs. The bridges of Tokyo, both the modern and traditional ones, are both functional and stunningly beautiful… Especially at night or sunset! Decorations which depict them can easily be incorporated into any type of interior and you’ll certainly find something appealing whether you prefer modern or classic décor.
