German artist Tobias Rehberger has renovated a vacant house on the island of Teshima in Japan to create a restaurant which was opened at the Setouchi Art Festival. In contrast to it's humble facade, the restaurant's interior features striking walls, floors and tables covered in camoflauge patterns from World War I battleships. The restaurant is called Called “Was du liebst, bring ich auch zum weinen" (What You Love also Makes You Cry).

This year's Setouchi Art festival was the first ever. Artists and architects from 17 countries contributed to the event, their work scattered over an island archipelago in Japan's southern inland sea. The aim is to bring income and people to a depressed rural area. The festival opened on July 19 and runs until October 31. setouchi-artfest.jp/en
