JGarden Description:This shukkei karesansui garden is located on the roof of a building. It is split into two parts. On the left is brown, crushed rock. On the right are white pebbles. Three large stones made of black, Swedish granite are distributed through the garden. Unlike most karesansui stones, these are not naturalized. They have retained evidence human work with some parts ground to a shine and others with polished, sharp edges.

12,912 sq ft.
 




In the distance,
Neither flowers nor maple leaves
Are to be see
Only a thatched hut beside the bay
In autumn's twilight.
