Gardens in Japan

The gardens in Japan are some of the most photgenic, beautiful and insanely peacefull places to be in the world.

The first picture is taken at Ryoan-ji. This rock garden is one of Japan's most famous Zen gardens: a raked gravel pit with 15 stones in small clusters. Apparently, if you look close enough, you can see pictures and images in the actual stone designs.

Here you can see the contast between the tile and the different textures of stones in the Zen garden.

This garden is part of a tea house we went near Gion.

The emperor's garden in the Imperial Palace. There were seriously WAY too many shots to take and it's hard on the ol' memory card.
