We deeply grasp the needs of our customers and create Japanese gardens using the eyes and skills of master gardeners to the greatest possible degree.
By investing the skills of Kyoto gardeners over time, we nurture the individuality that only that garden has, meaning its historical significance and the intent behind its creation, and thereby enrich its value.
We perform restoration construction for historical gardens that have been designated or registered cultural properties either as historic sites or places of scenic beauty.
We conduct and publish research from the vantage point of our technicians involved in landscape construction and management.
We create new appeal by utilizing the garden as a point of intersection in Japanese culture.
Here we introduce the gardens that Ueyakato Landscape is involved in.
The Ogura Hyakunin Isshu (known in English as “One Hundred Poets, One Poem Each”) is a poetry anthology created in the thirteenth century by the scholar Fujiwara no Teika by selecting a hundred poems by a hundred poets from the Collection of Japanese Poems from Ancient and Modern Times (Kokin Wakashu) and the Later Collection of Japanese Poems Continued (Shokugosen Wakashu).
This private residential garden, located not too far from Nanzen-ji Temple, was created to complement a house newly built on the property as a second home.
The Japanese garden at Ubusuna-no-sato TOMIMOTO was created as a garden befitting the birthplace of Japanese potter and Living National Treasure Tomimoto Kenkichi (1886-1963) by making effective use of stones and trees used in the original garden that existed here.
The Sakai branch of Namba Betsuin Temple is said to have been built in 1603 by Kyonyo (1558-1614), the twelfth head monk of Higashi Hongan-ji Temple.
