Windows drive stories. Various things happen around them; they are where people meet, exchange gazes and engage in conversation. In the world of fiction, windows often stimulate our imaginations, functioning, for example, as entrances to other worlds. Stories can also tell us what people who are not architects think about windows. In this section, you can see how windows are depicted in stories mainly from Japan. Enjoy the magical power of the architecture of the window.
