Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
TAKASHI SAWANO was born in Shizuoka, Japan in 1948. His love of nature and the Japanese landscape expressed itself at a very early age, making his choice of career a simple one. He received his degree in ornamental horticulture from Minami Kyushu University in 1972. After traveling throughout the USA and Europe, he finally settled in England where he has lived for the past 25 years. He is the United Kingdom's foremost designer of Japanese gardens and his work can be seen in private homes, commercial developments and public parks. Whilst his gardens are true to the original Japanese traditions, he adapts them to suit the climate, environment and materials of their particular setting which makes his work unique. He is also a master of ikebana, which he teaches and demonstrates. He and his wife live near London with their two cats.

It gave me brief idea about that. Further more there are many step by step instructions how to build your own garden. It's very easy and even gardening dummies can do it. I did it. And now I'm the hero of my village.

Other books may provide more history but if your aim is to build a Japanese garden, this may be the book for you.
The one big quibble with the book - very few photos, so if you're looking for inspiration, you're out of luck. Also, the photos used are a bit dated and show a lot of things that people try to veer away from today, like the "necklace of rocks" around a pond for example. A lot of 70's style design here.
This is a valuable book, but should not be your only book. Try Serene Gardens to start with.
I was hoping for a little more inspiration through photographs and seeing more examples of gardens people have created. This book gets down to the step-by-step details of building fences and dry riverbeds for example.
The book does have a nice materials/plant/planting guide in the back which I took a few notes from. But I'm in a brainstorming phase with my garden not the brass tacks phase, so I did return the book and will look into a book that is more photography-based and example-based, than how-to.
