Engawa are Japanese verandas that are built on the outer peripheral part of the house, facing the garden. It's a very familiar summer setting in Japan: sometimes, you can spot people sunbathing on it, drinking tea, reading books, doing homework... It's also a very nice place to enjoy the warmth of summer nights - just be sure to have an uchiwa fan with you!
Today we collected a number of relaxing engawa illustrations. Enjoy!
