Japanese Gardening

The art of Japanese gardens has been one of the most important parts of Japanese culture since the 6th century.  The garden design in Japan is strongly connected to the philosophy and religion of the country.  Shinto, Buddhism and Taoism are used in the creation of different garden styles in order to bring a spiritual sense to the gardens and to make them places where people could spend their time in a peaceful way and meditate.
