96 breathtakingly stunning Japanese gardens you must visit in Kyoto Kyoto's gardens are among the city's many glories. They are beautiful, thought-provoking. These unparalleled works of art at the creative frontier between man and nature date mainly from the Kamakura, Muromachi, and early Edo periods (approximately 1200 to 1650). These were eras of political and cultural ferment left us with many significant developments in the arts from the Noh theater to weaving and dyeing. The gardens of Kyoto featured in this book are a spectacular example of this peerless art form and collectively form a distinctive aspect of Japanese cultural heritage. Gardens, by incorporating living elements into a man-made design that is then integrated with buildings and other structures, necessarily embody their builders' philosophies concerning the relationship between humanity and nature. Those can be, very broadly speaking, divided into philosophies that view human beings as either dominant over or part of nature. Gardens in East Asia, and Japan in particular, tend to be of natural landscapes. The age-old Japanese view of how human beings should relate to nature is realized on a grand scale in the gardens of Kyoto. This book introduces the soul of Kyoto, the Japanese garden, in an unbroken continuity from the Heian period until today. Addressing their variations through the sub-categories of temple gardens, gardens of the Imperial Family and aristocratic households, and urban courtyard and other gardens, this book offers an insight into the compelling fascination that the beauty and philosophical depth of these gardens inspire.

Living with Japanese Gardens shows how to capture and integrate an authentic Japanese aesthetic into any landscape plan. Japanese gardens affirm our connection with the natural world through the integration of the garden with the home, enriching the total living space. From the artistry with which the gardener places plants, rocks, and water with the viewer's perspective in mind, to the way in which a Japanese garden can make one feel safe and sheltered, their mystery and appeal are now wildly popular. From the hundreds of public Japanese gardens around the world, to common garden shops and nurseries that now regularly stock stone lanterns, bamboo plants, water basins, and koi pond accessories, its easy to see how a Japanese garden will inspire and nurture. Gong and Parramore show how anyone can create a beautiful Japanese garden, whether they have a flat suburban lot, a small balcony, a rolling hillside, or a few small pots. Chapters cover these topics and more: Creating a reflecting pool Ikebana-inspired gardens Interior rooms that invite nature inside Creating a low-maintenance Japanese garden in a courtyard Using the principle of wabi sabi in the landscape A backyard that highlights the changing of the seasons Front door gardens

**Winner of the 2006 American Horticultural Society Book Award** The Art of the Japanese Garden is the only historical overview of Japanese gardens that covers Japanese gardening culture in one beautiful book. Japanese gardens are rooted in two traditions: an indigenous prehistoric tradition in which patches of graveled forest or pebbled beach were dedicated to nature spirits, and a tradition from China and Korea that included elements such as ponds, streams, waterfalls, rock compositions and a variety of vegetation. The Art of the Japanese Garden traces the development and blending of these two traditions, as well as the inclusion of new features as gardening reached new heights of sophistication on Japanese soil. 300 full-color Japanese garden illustrations and photographs highlight notable gardens in Japan, including graveled courtyards, early aristocratic gardens, esoteric and paradise gardens, Zen gardens, warrior gardens, tea gardens and stroll gardens. Also included are sections on modern trends and Japanese gardens in other countries.
