JGarden Glossary
- Garden Terms
- Landscape Terms




shakkei  lit. 'borrowed landscape'; to draw the outer landscape into the garden by 'capturing it alive'; a word imported from China, it was probably applied to the technique in the Meiji (1868-1912)and Taisho (1912-1926) eras when Japanese gardening techniques were being systematized; ikedori is the far older term.
