These Japanese gardens represent what modern Japanese garden designers are doing with blending their traditional art with modern and western styles of gardening.
I recorded this from the Japanese garden festival a few years ago and this video also has some analysis of the individual gardens I added recently.
“Shizen” means “nature” or “natural” in Japanese and incorporates the ideas of nature and human nature in harmony with each other. Therefore I created ShizenStyle (https://shizenstyle.com) where nature and human creativity are both celebrated. Its the blend of modern and rustic, contemporary and natural home and garden styles.
I studied Japanese garden design in Osaka and Fukui and am drawn to modern Japanese garden design. But I recognize the need to study traditional gardens in order to develop and appreciate modern garden design. I hope some of these videos provide some inspiration for you as well.
