Two interns from the TRIAD fellowship program visited Ueyakato for three days from June 6th. For the first two days, the interns created a small-scale tea garden under the instruction of our senior garden craftsman, followed by visits to several Kyoto gardens on the final day. Though challenged with new tools, terms and tasks at first, the fellows became soon familiar and accomplished their work smoothly. With their freshly acquired frame of reference as garden owner, craftsman as well as from a management point of view, the interns experienced the depth of Japanese gardens during the tour on the last day. We hope the interns can use the new perspective on landscape and management and further enjoy their upcoming rest of the fellowship program.
