Historical Biographies
Name:Kobori Enshu (1579-1647)

DescriptionEnshu was the most brilliant disciple among those that gathered around the teamaster Furuta Oribe. After Oribe was ordered to commit suicide, Enshu succeeded him, establishing a new form of tea ceremony. But it is his garden design and construction work for which he was known both to his contemporaries and to us today. Unfortunately, it is difficult to know which gardens he actually designed and many sites claim him as their designer, though the provenance is often quite murky.
