Book Launch “Houses and Gardens of Kyoto”
“Houses and Gardens of Kyoto” introduces a broad array of Kyoto’s traditional houses from every period of the city’s history. They range from summer villas to townhouses, from monumental Buddhist temples to insubstantial garden pavilions, from personal homes to traditional inns. All have their associated outdoor spaces, whether condensed courtyard gardens, picturesque stroll gardens, “dry landscape” stone gardens, or the “borrowed scenery” of distant landscapes. The photographer Akihiko Seki and author Thomas Daniell will speak (Japanese/English). The book is available at Kyoto Handicraft Center.
