“Schule im Berg” (School in the mountains) is a summer school hosted by nonprofit organization Art Biotop in cooperation with Niki Club that offers visitors a moment to sit amidst the serene forests and hills of Yokozawa—where an artistic spirit has long existed—to ponder and share their thoughts on the art of living. This year’s event was held July 29-31 and featured a diverse program including symposiums discussing art and aesthetics and hands-on craft workshops.
