Japanese Garden Images - Please on click slideshow to view gallery

Japanese gardens reveal themselves only detail by detail. After visiting a japanese garden we ask ourselves what is deliberate, what is accidental? Does it truly offer hidden meaning behind those rocks or ponds? To enjoy the hushed silence of a Kyoto garden is to appreciate the Japanese aesthetic, which puts great value on what is implied not shown. japanese garden photography, japanese garden photographer.

Zen Garden Images - Please click slideshow to view collection

Japanese rock gardens, karesansui or zen gardens were influenced by Zen Buddhism and can be found at Zen temples especially in the Kyoto area. Originally their creation and maintenance was a form of meditation itself. Japanese gardens are a living work of art in which the plants and trees are ever changing with the seasons. As they grow and mature, they are constantly sculpted to maintain and enhance the overall experience. In this way a Japanese garden is never the same and never really finished. japanese garden photography, japanese garden photographer.
