Program Description

Saiko Neon is an artist-in-residence set up on the shore of Lake Saiko, one of Fuji Five Lakes in Yamanashi Prefecture. Lake Saiko is located in the foot of Fuji, less than two hours away from Tokyo, and offers a glimpse of the magnificent natural environment and various Japanese cultures. The facility is a former campsite that has been refurbished and approximately 300 square meters. The entire site is approximately 6000 square meters including the back mountain, and has a total of three private spaces for artists.
