This old house called "Kadoya," built about 200 years ago, was restored using Japanese plaster, smoked cedar board, and traditional roof tiles. Miyajima built a water pool inside, and put the LED devices which count from 1 to 9, in the water. He called for 125 local residents to participate in the workshop, and they adjusted the speed of each counter as they wanted.
