Designed for the layman as well as the professional, this concise yet comprehensive guide provides both practical information and theoretical insights into the design of the Japanese garden. Kyoto, the capital of Japan for over one thousand years, possesses a richness of garden art without equal as a living chronicle of Japanese cultural history and environmental design. Following the introductory essays are individual entries for more than fifty temple and palace gardens. The text is augmented by an excellent selection of photographs, historical prints, maps and color plates.

The book’s design is refreshingly simple and uncluttered, and as a guide is easy to carry around....[it] provides a solid, and at times charming, introduction to the extraordinary gardens of Kyoto. —The East
