We are holding our second Japanese garden training seminar!

From April 14-18(Mon.-Fri.)2025, Ueyakato Landscape will be holding its second Japanese garden training seminar!

Our program is oriented toward non-Japanese speaking professionals involved in Japanese garden design, creation, management and nurturing, but we welcome participation from students too. Of course, clear and precise English interpretation will be provided as part of course instruction.

This will be a uniquely “Kyoto-style” seminar focusing on the unique spatial composition of Kyoto gardens. In Kyoto, where gardens are commonly created in relatively small places, a wide range of fences and other spatial boundaries have long been used as critical elements in determining how to plot and stage a garden's feeling of space. The aesthetic beauty of Kyoto gardens lies not just in the gardens themselves, but in the intimate relationship they form with their environment. This program aims to teach Kyoto’s unique garden aesthetic by looking at the relationship between its gardens and environment, while also sharing knowledge that participants can practically develop at gardens in their home regions.

We will begin accepting applications for this program on September 12 (Fri.)!

Please note that this program only has five spaces available. Those interested in participating should plan to apply early!
