Tōfuku-ji (東福寺)ーmodern zen gardens

I love Tōfuku-ji (東福寺)* in Kyoto. 

The modern zen garden is beautiful. The designer is Mirei Shigemori**


Mirei Shigemori learned zen garden history and he made moden zen garden in the 1930s.


The moss garden has been emblematic of the renewal of Japanese gardening in the 20th Century.
