Who We Are:

We are “Hotch-no-Lodge (A Lodge in Hocchi, an old residential district in Karuizawa)”, a medical clinic & day care center, which aims to create a “cultural base” for/with all kinds of people in the town from younger to older, regardless of their status or origins. We have also a large kitchen in our place, where we can get around together anytime to share our ideas and culture.

We treasure every one of each favorite thing and strong point of our members. We share them with our neighbors and get to know each other even better than meeting as a doctor and a patient, a caring and a cared. We believe that such casual daily conversation enables us more creative care services.

Thus, our motto is “Meet us as your good fellows, beyond your age or physical / social status, enjoying what we like.”

We Now Start a New Art Project:

Based on our concept above, we now start a new “artist-in-residence-like” program, which takes place in our lodge: Artist in Clinic (AIC).

We believe and expect, doing art activities, that we might find a spontaneous relationship between a caring person and a person to be cared. For example, a person to be cared would be a designing teacher who teaches how to draw a picture or which colors to be chosen to his or her caring person.

These kinds of art activities have a power to take away our preoccupation with the person’s physical condition, status or belonging. It can then highlight his or her creative personality.

We Call for:

Artists interested in working in the medical or caring sector as one of our staffs and contributing in a creative way.

Requirements Are:

- Consciousness of being equal with person to be cared: find your friends with a variety of life experiences and expert skills, or promising talents.
- Keen eyes and ears to see what it is like to live out one’s life and come to an end of it: here is the ground-zero of your creation.
- Any kinds of creative output from your staying experience: the process of your creation might be a “therapy”, “medical care” or more for our neighbors. Your creation can be of any styles and genres, for which you can work with our specialized art managers.
