The Japanese Garden: Secrets of Natural Landscape Design

From prominent temple gardens in Kyoto to the tranquil stone oasis at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Shiro Nakane is keeping the art of the traditional Japanese garden alive. Favoring subdued assemblages of stones and greenery over lush florals, the Japanese garden is revered for its calm, meditative quality. Son of garden master Kinsaku Nakane, Shiro began studying the craft as a young boy and has been following in his father’s footsteps ever since. He comes to Japan Society to share his insights on Japanese garden design gained through a lifetime of work in the field. Moderated by Stephen Morrell, Director of the John P. Humes Japanese Stroll Garden. Followed by a reception.

The Japanese Garden: Secrets of Natural Landscape Design is funded, in part, by a generous grant from The Omomuki Foundation.


Reception is supported in part by the Portland Japanese Garden.
