Ueyakato Landscape’s garden concierges gave a tour around Nanzen-ji Temple and Murin-an Garden to artists-in-residence at Goethe-Institut Villa Kamogawa. These artists are active in a wide range of fields, including photography, music, and art. We explained to them the changes that have occurred in each period of Japanese gardening history and how to look at Japanese gardens. They were very pleased with the tour and said it would provide a useful reference for them during the rest of their stay in Kyoto. We hope that their learning experiences at Japanese gardens provide each of them with inspiration for their creative works.
