Japanese Tea Gardens

Posted on

Hi,

Thanks for reading my Japanese gardens blog.

Ron Marucia sent me an e mail yesterday asking about Tea Gardens and their meaning, this was following a post that mentioned tea gardens and tea gardens fairly recently.

The idea of a Tea garden is that it is a spiritual have for the occupants and visitors. It was developed in conjunction with the Tea ceremony which was taught by Se no Rikyu. Tea gardens must never appear artificial and always must have a natural appearance to be enjoyed on approach to the teahouse or small gazebo. Other types of Japanese gardens include elements that have been developed from Tea gardens such as stepping stones, small clusters of trees and stone lanterns.

I hope that goes someway to answering the question and maybe your curiosity too.
