Their style has evolved from the earliest public display gardens to the friendship gardens of the post-war period to more recent naturalistic woodland gardens.
This guide includes profiles of iconic Japanese-style public gardens, a primer on the historical roots of various styles, commentary by the most respected names in Japanese garden design, and practical information on designing and caring for a Japanese-inspired home garden.
