General Information | Practical Information

The traditional bench of the Japanese garden
Being able to enjoy the aesthetics of the Japanese garden in a comfortable way is an essential part of the experience. A comprehensive garden shelter known as a Koshikake (腰掛) provides this in a uniquely authentic Japanese fashion. The seating area is completely covered on top and modestly covered on the sides, protecting it from harsh weather conditions.

The Koshikake, also known by the full term Koshikake Machiai (腰掛待合), is a key element of the traditional Japanese tea ceremony and can be found in every tea garden in some shape or form. Participants of the tea ceremony have to wait on the bench before being called into the tearoom. This way the mood is leisurely build. The Japanese term Koshikake Machiai refers to this ritual and loosely translates to the meeting bench.

Probably the most important principle of the Japanese garden is that it should have a certain natural essence. This also applies to the Koshikake to a certain degree. Although it is not natural in shape, it is primarily made of natural materials. In this case, the element of wood.

The Yokaze Koshikake is designed with the image of one sitting underneath the peaceful night sky in mind. Enjoying a wonderful view of the garden slightly lit by moonlight. This thought formed the inspiration for the name Yokaze (夜風), which is Japanese for night breeze.
