This Setsugekka Restaurant in China Captures the Essence of Japanese Cuisine

A 1,300 square meter endeavor.

By //Design

Chief architect Sun Tianwen of Shanghai Hip-pop Architectural Decoration Design Co. has created a new restaurant project called Waka Haiku Setsugekka that focuses heavily on Japanese cuisine. The restaurant is individually covered in ultra-clear glass engraved with sakura, blue LED light bands emitting over black walls and ceilings. This aesthetic of space, color, and layout mix into a symphonic sense of zen that Tianwen utilizes in order to influence customers’ thoughts and behavioral pattern.

Conveying the customer’s core values and aspirations, the restaurant itself reflects the “setsugekka,” a vital aspect of Japanese culture that refers to the seasons of the year: blue-white (winter), yellow-white (autumn) and pink-white (spring). Each hue dictates the essence of the restaurant by using the colors in vivid LED lights around the interior space.

Waka Haiku Setsugekka is located in China at Changchun, Jilin Province.
