Artist's Description

Saiho-ji Zen Garden Kyoto Japan

The oldest important garden of the Muromachi Period was re-designed by a Zen Buddhist priest, Muso Soseki. It is a stroll garden, set in a dark forest and designed for meditation.

Visits to this garden need to be organised in advance. With letter of permission in hand we went by bus from Kyoto.

First of all we knelt in front of small tables and with ink and pen then copied over Japanese writing on the paper provided. A monk then invited us to follow him where we knelt again in front of a shrine with him and then he said we could wander in the gardens. The rest of the group all being Japanese continued with their writings.

We could then spend as long as we liked wandering along the paths and soaking up the peace and tranquility of this beautiful old moss garden, and unlike many of the other gardens we visited, we were the only ones there at the time, which really made it extra special.
