The Research Center for Japanese Garden Art, in Kyoto, is pleased to announce we are accepting applications for the seventh annual English-language intensive seminar regarding the history, design theory, and construction of Japanese Gardens. Any persons interested in receiving more information about the Seminar may do so by visiting the website, or sending an email or fax to the Center. The seminar will be held September 29th - October 11th, 2003.

The program is a two week intensive seminar that affords serious students from abroad a number of unique opportunities to study the Japanese garden. Most days will be divided between morning site visits and afternoon lectures on campus, although there will be several all-day excursions as well. An outstanding feature of the course is the wide range of gardens that are scheduled to be visited, spanning the historical range from prehistoric sacred spaces to modern Japanese gardens, including several gardens that are not usually open to the public. Through lectures, and on-site interpretation, the gardens will be presented in the context of the cultural forces that shaped their development. The seminar will also include on-site sessions with professional gardeners to experience, first hand, the techniques and process of Japanese garden design and construction.

The cost of the two week intensive course is 260,000 Japanese yen ($2,360 US at 110/$1). This course fee covers all lectures, course materials provided in Japan, housing for the duration of the two week course (13 nights), transportation fees to and from gardens within Japan, as well as basic medical insurance while participating in the course. Housing will be arranged by the Center at a convenient temple or inn (please note: breakfast will be included with the housing but other meals must be arranged for individually).

APPLICATIONS FOR THE YEAR 2003 PROGRAM MUST BE RECEIVED BY: MARCH 31ST, 2003
