Japanese gardens that you find in the land of the rising sun, were not created yesterday. They have left so many years behind but still they shine like the old days. Some Japanese gardens you see in Kyoto and Tokyo are great and most of them were built thousands years ago from now. They represent a long period of history where you could experience both positive and negative view of them. Many beautiful gardens were destroyed over times, many were built in modern Japanese era and there are some which are being built by the great artists.

Traditional Japanese gardens are famous the world over. These gardens highlight the beauty of nature, avoiding artificial, man-made components wherever possible. The first of these gardens began to be built on the island of Honshu around 600 . Japanese gardens also capture aspects of the traditional Shinto religion, as well as Daoism and Buddhism. The gardens speak of the unstoppable march of time, natural aspects of the Japanese landscape, such as its volcanic peaks, and often include replicas of the legendary Mount Horai. A few hours from Kyoto, you can view the gardens surrounding the Adachi Museum of Art. This garden has won the Journal of Japanese Gardening’s award for best garden every year since 2003.

Gives a good insight from professional's eye on Japanese Garden Design.

this book is very useful and we highly recommend it.
I bought the book because I intend to build a japanese style house.This book is useless in residence design.The title is wrong!The book is about famous royal palaces and sorroundings.It contains exactly nineteen beautiful color pictures, showing some general views of six imperial palaces and gardens. Short descriptions and historical details are presented with a score of black and white pictures and some sketcks.
It is difficult to believe that this ordinary book was written by the former leading authority in premodern Japanese architecture.
I recommend "Form & Space in Japanese Architecture" by Norman Carver Jr, who really understood and captured the the japanese spirit.
I read the first edition of this book, wich dates from 1995. So the information is old, though relevant.
If Japanese gardens are new to you and you want a quick insight into this matter (on less than 30 pages of text), exemplified on some 5 of the most important gardens in Japan to learn about the history and its most important aspect: the integration of the garden with the surrounding architecture, this is a good book.
One of the advantages of reading older books, like this one, is that is shows you fotos which are old too. This book contains fotos from gardens in times long go by, in which you can see many differences with the actual situation. So also it gives you some clues on the development of these gardens. For example the foto of Ryoanji shows the garden with the surrounding earthen wall topped with a tiled roof. This roof over the wall is now made of bark, which to my opinion looks nicer because of its more informal character.
Though old, I liked this book.
