Many of the projects require access to materials that are not readily accessible in many parts of the world. For example, the Kinkakuji-Gaki (bamboo fence) project calls for a "scorched log," three different diameters of bamboo, and black hemp rope. Black hemp rope would require some searching, but nearly 3" diameter green Bamboo is not very common here in the United States A later project calls for very specific types of bamboo and use of a specialized bamboo-working tool. Again,not something your average reader can find at the local garden shop.
Another complaint is that only the first 36 pages are in color. The remaining 80 or so are panchromatic prints on a different type of paper.
Still, I would recommend this book, it goes way beyond the basics found some of the general-audience books. It's good to own, but I wouldn't recommend it as your first book for creating a Japanese garden. For your first, I'd recommend Ortho's All-About creating Japanese gardens (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001F7AXM2/)
