Literally “bed room, alcove”. Hueco generally practiced in the wall of the main room, perpendicular to the garden and plays a role in the decoration of the traditional Japanese house. That’s where you hang a picture chosen according to the station and placed a bronze art object or ceramic, or a floral motif. The taste of the owners of the house is judged by the harmony achieved between these three elements.
