There is a lot of us that would like to live in the Swiss Mountains, but how about living underground in the Swiss Mountains? Not indie rock underground, like full blown, "my house is underground" style. Oh, and your house will look incredible as well.

Hayama's pale, etereal figures with frail bodies and pale tinited eyes often inspired by mangas, portray an angelic appearance which clashes with a penetrating and unnerving glare directed at the viewer.
