JGarden Description:Kanun no niwa literally means 'Garden of Appreciating Clouds'. The garden is located at 1200m altitude and this was Shigemori's inspiration. Altitude of the site makes one not only closer to the gods but also causes the air to feel different due to altitude. The garden is a karesansui that uses sand to outline cloud formations.
