about this item

The unique beauty of the Japanese garden stems from its spirituality and rich symbolism, yet most discussions on this kind of garden rarely provide more than a superficial overview. This book takes a thorough look at the process of designing a Japanese garden, placing it in a historical and philosophical context.

Goto and Naka, both academic experts in Japanese garden history and design, explore:

  • The themes and usage of the Japanese garden

  • Common garden types such as tea and Zen gardens

  • Key maintenance techniques and issues.

Featuring beautiful, full-colour images and a glossary of essential Japanese terms, this book will dramatically transform your understanding of the Japanese garden as a cultural treasure.
