100 year-old deteriorated earthen storehouse rejuvenated to look like the Kinkaku-ji golden temple.
The exterior wall was plastered with an earth-Shikkui finish
and pasted on gold foils.
The interior's rusty gold theme was plastered with dyed earth with indigo, and this wall's pasted gold foils were brushed off for an aged look. This epochal finish surprised Japan nation wide.
