    I saw Hokusai's artwork embodied in the "super gorgeous" Japanese style of the room.

    According to the student who posted the pictures, the design of the room is based on this ukiyo-e (woodblock print) by Hokusai.

    A fabric with "The Great Wave off Kanagawa" printed on it hangs around the room.

    "It's the same room arrangement, but looks totally different"

    The "Kanagawa Room" is the collaborative effort of four students who study Japanese at Xihua University.

    The four students (who are also roommates) purchased the materials online and designed everything.

    One of them elaborated, "All roommates like this Japanese style. Needless to say, this does not mean anti-patriotism against China"
