Reviews

"Is it a garden book? A travel guide? Pure eye candy? This visual romp across Japan, which explores some of its most serene and green spaces and includes addresses, visiting hours, and other practical details for each, is all of the above. Locales include the grounds at Shisendo (a 17th-century Kyoto hermitage) and Tokyo's Nezu Shrine, site of the Bunkyo Azalea Festival." --Publishers Weekly
"...the book is far more than a travel guide. It is an ideal read for all lovers of Japanese gardens. Highly recommended!" --Shakkei Vol. 25 No. 4. Spring 2019
