Lines and circles drawn in the white sand form what is known as a Japanese rock garden. The dry landscape is composed of a careful arrangement of rocks, pruned trees, and sand raked to resemble ripples in water.
As I listen to our guide explain the garden arrangements, it amazes me the level of thought and detail that goes into every part of the Japan garden. Just like the depth of detail and meaning that frames a traditional tea ceremony. Just like everything else about Japan.
