Japanese Garden: Secrets of Natural Landscape Design
Japanese Gardens: Secrets of Natural Landscape Design From the famous temple gardens in Kyoto to the tranquil stone oasis of the Boston Museum of Art, Shiro Nakane has always maintained the vitality of traditional Japanese garden art. Japanese gardens prefer a combination of soft stones and green plants rather than lush flowers, and are highly regarded for their calm and contemplative qualities. Shiro, the son of the director Nakane Kinsaku, has been learning crafts since he was a child, and has been following in his father’s footsteps ever since. He came to the Japan Association to share his insights on Japanese garden design from his life in the field. Hosted by Stephen Morrell, director of John P. Humes’ Japanese Garden Walk. Part of the funding for this project comes from the generous funding of the Omomuki Foundation. In the 2015-2016 season, the Talks+ project of the Japan Association was generously sponsored by Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG). The reception part is supported by the Portland Japanese Garden. Wine provided by Torii Mor. Sake provided by JOTO Sake. Chris A. Wachenheim, Sandy Heck Lecture Fund, Dr. Yuichiro Kuwama, and Hiroko Onoyama provided additional support. —— Visit: Like: Follow: Watch: Join: Teach:.
