The creation of a Japanese garden combines respect for nature with adherence to simple principles of aesthetics and structure. In Japanese Garden Design, landscape architect Marc Peter Keane presents the history and development of the classical metaphors that underlie all Japanese gardens. 

Keane describes the influences of Confucian, Shinto and Buddhist principles that have linked poetry and philosophy to the tangible metaphor of the garden in Japanese culture. Creative inspiration is found in the prehistoric origin of Japanese concepts of nature; the gardens of Heian aristocrats; the world-renowned Zen garden, or rock garden; the tea garden; courtyard garden; and stroll garden.

Detailed explanations of basic design concepts identify and interpret the symbolism of various garden forms and demonstrate these principles in use today in Japanese landscape architecture. 

Topics include:
  • Design Principles
  • Design Techniques
  • Design Elements
  • Godspirit in Nature
  • Poetry in Paradise
  • The Art of Emptiness
  • Spiritual Passage
  • Private Niches
  • A Collector's Park
  • Hardcover: 200 pages
  • 10.9 x 0.9 x 8.9"
