Profusely illustrated throughout in full color photography by Noboru Murata, "Japanese Gardens" is an informed and informative tour through the best example of Japanese gardening techniques and philosophy extant today. An elegant, beautiful, inspired and inspiring compilation, "Japanese Gardens" is a welcome and enthusiastically recommended addition to personal, professional, academic, and community library Gardening & Landscape Design reference collections and supplemental reading lists.
