Pressestimmen

"Capturing the essence of nature in twenty-three gardens in Japan, authors Geeta Mehta and Kimie Tada classify and tell the history of garden making in that country, as well as explain the elements and techniques in their design. The selection of landscapes is well chosen, ranging from classic temple gardens to public and private gardens in great variety and size. Noboru Murata's glorious photographs celebrate their beauty." —The National Gardener

Synopsis

At the heart of a Japanese garden is harmony with nature. More than simply a landscape of trees and flowering shrubs, a Japanese garden provides a place of serenity and rest, filled with peaceful spots that lend themselves to meditation and contemplation. "Japanese Gardens" celebrates and illustrates this ideal, showcasing the exquisite natural beauty of more than 20 quintessentially Japanese gardens - big and small, urban and rural, traditional and contemporary. The expert author-and-photographer team behind this book excels at capturing and explaining the essential elements and techniques that distinguish Japanese gardens from those of other countries. The featured sites range from large feudal period gardens, temple gardens and private and countryside gardens to mountain flower gardens, tea gardens and gardens devoted to miniature bonsai.

HASH(0x8ff7e4ec) von 5 Sternen Beautful Book 13. September 2009
Von Puzzle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Japanes Gardens may be only a mid-size book, but it has some of the best examples of Japanese gardens that I have seen. The examples vary from temple to residential, from relatively grand to quite modest, but they are all outstanding in one way or another. They are very well photographed, and the images are large enough to really 'look around' in. I have quite a few 'picture' books on this subject, and Japanese Gardens is one of the most enjoyable to return to. For the last few weeks it's always been out, and often open... and I find myself frequently pausing to turn pages and ponder the beautiful images. The text is easy to read, and informative as well. This is a lovely book.

HASH(0x8ff8f0c0) von 5 Sternen A splendid book on Japanese gardens! 22. Dezember 2009
Von Kai Virihaur - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
For me, the important thing to learn about Japanese gardens is the spirit behind them. Thus, I am not much interested in books of the "how to" type here. I believe you need to understand this subject at a deeper level.
Therefore, I find this book to be a most excellent guide to Japanese gardening. The pictures are simply stunning. The photographer is extremely skilled and has an almost magical ability to use the play of light and shadow to best advantage when portraying the gardens. Overall, the effect of looking at the pictures is almost like actually being there!
The accompanying texts are also well written and tells about the history of each garden.
Read this book, get yourself immersed in the pictures, to get some true intuitive understanding of the Japanese garden.

HASH(0x900d2da4) von 5 Sternen An informed and informative tour through the best examples of Japanese gardening techniques and philosophy extant today 15. Dezember 2008
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Japanese gardens are legendary for their natural tranquility and artistically elegant use of space and topography. Co-compiled and written by Geeta K. Mehta and Kimie Tada, "Japanese Gardens: Tranquility, Simplicity, Harmony" visually showcases an impressive and memorable series of Japanese temple gardens, private gardens, and public gardens. Profusely illustrated throughout in full color photography by Noboru Murata, "Japanese Gardens" is an informed and informative tour through the best examples of Japanese gardening techniques and philosophy extant today. An elegant, beautiful, inspired and inspiring compilation, "Japanese Gardens" is a welcome and enthusiastically recommended addition to personal, professional, academic, and community library Gardening & Landscape Design reference collections and supplemental reading lists.

HASH(0x8ff86d38) von 5 Sternen Variety not beauty or usefulness 27. März 2013
Von Xian - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was disappointed by this book.
Lavish praise from others, but if you want a coffee table book, this isn't it. Many of the photographs are overly processed in a '70s style, whitening the shadows. Also the resolution for many of these is simply not adequate.
If on the other hand you want analytic or practical insight into Japanese gardens, this is also not for you. Accompanying text is brief, descriptive and much too general:

"A good view of the entire garden can be seen from the building. The pond is fed by a man-made mountain stream. The miniaturized suhama pebble beach in the foreground seeks to mimic nature. The large stones were brought here from a mountain valley. The stone lantern called yukimi doro, seen on the left, is situated on the water's edge, as is usual at garden ponds."

Who will it suit?
People who want a broadbrush introduction to a variety of Japanese gardens.

HASH(0x8ffa52a0) von 5 Sternen Very informative guide to Japanese gardening 20. Juli 2013
Von M.C. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is filled with beautiful illustrations and very informative writings. I was able to take information presented in this book and incorporate it into my own garden. Overall, it was a very helpful guide as well as an interesting read. I would recommend this book to those who want to incorporate Japanese style garden into their own, or those who simply want to learn more about Japanese garden.
