This is Kyoto

Gardens


Rock garden of Ryoan-ji Temple
|| Shugakuin Rikyu, imperial villa

Every garden is a manifestation of the Japanese love for nature and their artistic sensibility. Representing nature's grandeur within a limited space, inanimate objects may express life eternal. Placed in every corner with great attention to detail, stone lanterns and arched bridges are the perfect combination of utility and ornamentation. The full beauty of the Japanese garden may only be experienced in Kyoto. With superb aesthetic sense, the art of the Japanese garden was perfected in a seasonable climate over many long years. The old capital's gardens are a treasure worthy of pride.
