In this reissued title, the author identifies the common motif underlying five major epochs in Japanese gardening, which is the recurrent attempt to unite natural beauty and human perceptions of beauty to achieve an aesthetic symbiosis.
The information contained in book is amazingly rich, eg, it contains about two hundred photos, tens pictures of garden layout (which are very precious), traditional paintings and woodcuts.
