Japanese Rock Garden – Large and small stones expressesing the flow of rivers and waterfalls
In 1968, this garden was built for the founding family by Tanaka Taiami, who was involved in the restoration of many famous gardens across the country, including the Ginkaku-ji Temple of Kyoto.
This “Kare-sansui” or traditional rock garden uses large and small stones that express the flow of mountain streams and waterfalls, and this style is a rare form of work for Tanaka Taiami. It is said that when Kikusui was damaged by two floods in 1966 and 1967, which forced the company to relocate to the current location, the garden was deliberately made as a rock garden that did not require water as a sign of consideration to the founding family. Please enjoy the scenery of the seasons as you walk along the stepping stones around the rock garden covered with beautiful cedar moss.
