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.

  1. Hi John,

    I followed your link on the post from the Tiger Sheds blog, about the history of Japanese gardens.

    Your photos really are amazing! I remember visiting Ginkakuji after walking part of the Philosopher's Path, but unfortunately my camera died earlier in the day so I was unable to take any pictures.

    So thanks for refreshing my memory.
