Japanese Chaniwa Gardens

Posted on Updated on


Thanks for reading my Japanese garden’ s blog, I hope you rweekend is going well.

This blog is full of useful Japanese garden information and Zen gardens too, please read and enjoy.

I had a couple of e mails last week about the Tea ceremony and where it is held. I have a lot of information about this is my Japanese garden manual which you can discover at www.japzengardens.org

But I wish to post some information that may be of help and interest.

Chaniwa gardens are specifically bulit for Tea cermonies. The garden has a Tea house where the ceremony is held and are simple in design in accordance with something called ‘Sado’ which is the Tea ceremony itself.

These types of gardens contain stepping stones that lead towards the house, they also have stone lanterns( some fine examples you can see on previous posts on this blog) and a wash basin made of stone- this is where guests purify themselves before taking part in the tea ceremony.

Hope that information is of use and please take a look at my FREE Japanese garden video , you can see it by clicking on this link: www.japzengardens.org/freevideo.htm

Have a great day.
