Japanese Gardening

Japanese gardening is a cultural style of gardening which is represented to construct a setting that looks like nature by applying rocks, shrubs, sand, trees, ponds, sand, imitation hills, and flowing water as art-styles.  The Zen and Shinto heritage are two large parts which influence of Japanese gardening this mean the gardens have reflective spirits.  Japanese gardening is very different than the Western design and everybody say it is more meditational and soul reassuring.

In Japanese gardening, there are three primary techniques for decorating.  The first technique is made the smaller measure.  Reduced measures are the art of taking a real setting from mountains, nature, trees, rivers, and reproducing it on a smaller measure.   Symbolization concerns interpretation and abstraction.  For example, is using white sand to imitate the ocean.  This view based on artists that would use something like an ocean or a forest as a background, it would become eventually an essential part of the setting.
