Thanks for reading my blog on Japanese gardens.
Today my post is a brief indicator about the use of gates, fences and walkways in Japanese gardens. Fences and gates, rather like Western gardens give a feeling of seclusion in the garden. Though they can also be used in Japanese gardens to point the visitor in a different direction to another area for example. It is a very important symbolism in a Japanese garden to have that feeling of seclusion.
Walkways are always used very creatively to wander off in all directions to small areas of the Japanese garden. This happens even in a large garden.
Gates and fences can be one of two things either a barrier or an entrance way. Enclosures are used in very interesting ways in Japanese gardens.
To find out much more about Japanese gardens read my manual, you can find out all about it at www.japzengardens.org
Have a good day!
