“When creating a garden, visualize the famous landscapes of our country and come to understand their most interesting points. Re-create the essence of those scenes in the garden, but do so interpretatively, not strictly.” – Sakutei-ki 作庭記
Hashimoto Gahō (1835-1908)
If you wish to connect the authentic soul of the Japanese garden, I suggest you the video “Basics of the Japanese Garden – Setting stones” of 80 minutes, where you will find all the ancestral teachings that are decrypted. You can buy it after subscribing on this page : E.learning Platform of Japanese Garden Institute
Or if you prefer practicing, I offer you a two-day course that is already scheduled in France for several years and will soon also be in North America, in my training center.
