Get to know the structure of Japanese gardens better!
The gardens closest to the manor gardens are those where the Dry Garden (Karesensui), the Water Garden (Chisen shiki teien) and the Teak Garden within the Water Garden (Chaniwa) form a unit. The Japanese garden is actually a three-dimensional painting. Its designer uses plants, rocks, open spaces as a painter in the colors on the palette.
Plants of Japanese gardens
It is not the variety of the plant that is really important, but its texture and form. This is why we can see other species in Japanese gardens. These plants, which were retained by the new owner-gardener, may be legacies of previous gardens.
The beauty of Japanese gardens
Through a bamboo gate, we can enter to the Dry Garden, which symbolizes the way of life, and which turns into a cherry tree garden every spring, evoking the beauty, greatness, but brevity and passing of life. In this way, the Sweet Cherry Garden can merge with the Dry Garden, where the waterfall stream eventually flows into the ocean that symbolizes the universe. Water can also be replaced and symbolized by stone grind.
Paradise Japanese gardens
The system of gardens, built in the style of the Paradise Water Garden, consisting of waterfalls, winds under bridges between islands and eventually widens into small ponds. The entrance to the Teak Garden is usually marked by lanterns and cubes that give water to make tea.
