 Botanical Garden

Did you know that the gardens of Kyoto are mostly native, that the Japanese garden craftsmen strive to follow patterns found in local nature, and that things you see (plants and teatime) are as important as what you don’t see (shadows and empty space)? Enter landscapes in private homes, monasteries, and an emperor’s estate with Leslie Buck as she takes you on a visual tour of gardens mentioned in her exciting new memoir: "Cutting Back: My Apprenticeship In the Gardens of Kyoto."
