Classic Japanese Stone Groupings For Japanese Gardens

Posted on


Thanks for reading my Japanese gardens blog.

I am posting today the second part of information about stone groupings in Japanese gardens. a very important aspect to become aware of or perhaps more aware of.

Buddha stone- (Mida buhtsu), the male stone

Goddess stone (Kwannon), the female stone

Child’s stone (Seishi)

the above is a very classical stone grouping in Japanese gardens, it tends to provide a focal point or inspiration for the centering of other stone groups within the garden, quite often in the ‘Guardian stone’ position. To learn more about stones and rocks in Japanese gardens go to :

Tomorrow, Temple rock gardens and their meaning.

Have agreat day.
