In Japanese gardens, visitors find nature condensed and brought to perfection. Trees are trained and sculpted; the finest natural landscapes are reproduced in miniature; and the seasons are celebrated with spring blossom and the fiery leaves of autumn.

The Gardens of Japan is the perfect introduction to Japanese gardens. Helena Attlee captures the essence of Japanese garden style, and outlines its history. She then explores 28 of the great Japanese gardens in detail, explaining their character and nature. Alex Ramsay's superb photographs, specially taken for The Gardens of Japan, illustrate every aspect of the gardens.

Lovely photographs of Japanese gardens. I liked the addition of photographs of gardeners at work.
