Long ago, Japanese daily life and nature were closely linked for the people living in the Satoyama, the space between the lowlands and the mountains. The people there drank the spring water and used it to wash their vegetables; fallen leaves were composted and used to fertilise the fields.

Reflecting this simple lifestyle, this garden expresses the importance of living in harmony with nature today. Nature gives the blessing of life to us all and in turn we must treat it gently and with respect. Kazuyuki Ishihara has designed this garden to highlight the symbiosis between nature and our lives.
