大徳寺(瑞峰院)

This is one of interesting samples of Kare San Sui (枯山水). The concept of Kare San Sui is very unique. The white stones/pebbles/sands represents the area of water. This type of gardens enable us to meditate and contemplate about the deeper aspect/meaning of nature/universe. The beautiful flowers in many other gardens do entertain our eyes and bring healing to our soul. Here, while enjoying the minimalistic beauty, one can also cultivate one’s imagination.
