The concept of karesansui (the Japanese “dry landscape” garden) is very unique. Its simplicity stimulates the imagination of the viewer. The small white pebbles may represent the surface of the sea, a flowing river, or even the universe. The stones are carefully chosen and placed, and may represent islands. While colorful gardens entertain our eyes and bring us joy, the minimalistic simplicity of the karesansui garden enables us to contemplate the essence of the cosmos.
