Panel of Japan's Gardens A tray landscape for sale in one of the shops in Kyoto, Japan. Notice the small pagodas and the water-worn rocks. The latter is especially prized for these trays.
One of the ponds in the temple garden at Miyajima, Japan. Here one sees a typical little tea-house, build out over the water, with a porch around it, where one may sit to drink tea and enjoy the view. Huge old maples are to be found along the shore, with an occasional pine or cryptomeria. Notice the straight slab of stone laid across to form a bridge, and the little five-storied pagoda.
Typical view taken in the Inland Sea, Japan.
