JGarden Description:A shukkei karesansui garden depicts a famous Chinese mountain from sumi-e painting. 2,356 sq ft. 




A high mountain
soars wihout
a grain of dust.
A waterfall
plunges without
a drop of water.
Once or twice
on an evening of moonlight
in the wind
this man here
has been happy
playing the game that suited him.
