"Kawaguchi writes poetically...packed with fascinating insights, from tea gardens to the history of the beloved azaleas. It is an illuminating blend of the ever-changing past and the present. For a Zen master, only the "now" moment would exist. If you are going to visit Kyoto's gardens, read her account first." - "Financial Times"
"superba? a detailed look at various types of Zen temple gardens, from early pond gardens inspired by Buddhist ideas of paradise to the most abstract and esoteric style of gardening, such as Ryoan-ji garden's famous gravel-raked patterns and carefully placed rocks. As well as helping us to understand the thinking behind some of these amazing gardens, Kawaguchi also uses her book to teach about the key symbols and motifs in Zen temple gardens" a "The Vancouver Sun""
"simply fascinatinga? .There are gorgeous photos throughout the book by Alex Ramsey and a very useful list at the back of Temple Gardens, addresses, phone numbers and opening hours. It's an essential book for anyone who wants to understand what goes into a true Japanese garden; a great reference work; and a beautiful book for display on any table." a "Garden Design Online""
"Japanese gardens are all about distilling the essence of nature into a composed oasis of tranquility. In her latest book, landscape lecturer Kawaguchi ("Serene Gardens: Creating Japanese Design and Detail in the Western Garden") introduces Western readers to the primary concepts and key components of Japan's Zen temple and tea gardens. After opening with a historical overview of temple gardens, she analyzes a selection of notable gardens by explaining the role each elementa stones, plants, water, etc.a plays in the landscape as a whole. The section on the symbols and motifs found in Japanese gardens is especially enlightening, and the directory of contact information for temple gardens will be a boon for those who wish to explore these places firsthand. VERDICT This volume neatly captures the quiet elegance and minimalist beauty of these spaces, and the combination of Kawaguchi's insightful prose and Ramsay's gorgeous photographs makes it a terrific introduction to the subject."" - Library Journal""
"This book has excellent photographs, by Alex Ramsay, and the inclusion of garden plans is most welcome. Kawaguchi writes with admirable clarity about Zen gardens" - "Garden Visit"
"Ramsay has captured perfectly angled, framed and seasonally timed color shots that allow a feeling of intimacy and of being there experiencing the gardens. Kawaguchi offers scholarly, detailed, deeper exploration of the history and significance of each element. Born in Tokyo and raised in the United States and Canada, Kawaguchi not only interprets titles and words, but knows how to sync cross-cultural concepts.This is both a visual idea book that gardeners can flip through in a day, and an in-depth look at the Zen mind's landscape possibilities that could be revisited throughout a lifetime." a "Lexington Herald Leader" "
