Anyone who has seen a Japanese garden has admired its simple beauty and refined aesthetic. Interpreting its rich tradition of symbols, accessing its profound philosophy, requires more attention. In hundreds of splendid photographs, Creating Japanese Gardens offers insights into the abstract symbols and natural techniques of these microcosms; the palace gardens at Katsura, the Golden Pavilion, the dramatic effect of the karesansui at Ryoan-ji... These and other famous gardens will inspire amateur gardeners and professional designers alike. Philip Cave offers the practical advice necessary to fulfill the aspiration to re-create Japan’s exquisite landscapes that these photographs will instill in everyone who sees them.
