From this angle, the sand appears to be an extension of the tatami-mat floor, leading our eyes out into the nature. The geometric patterns of the tatami, vertical posts, and the small shoji-screens contrast harmoniously with the carefully enhanced shapes of the round azalea bushes and trimmed trees. It is easy to lose track of time here. This photograph was made in 1987, and the cluster of reddish sasanqua flowers on the right side of the image no longer exist. The caretaker of the garden was elated when he saw this image for the first time.
From the Temple Gardens of Kyoto collection.
