We want people in and outside of Japan to not only enjoy the beauty of Japanese gardens, but also to understand where they come from and why they were built. Even more, we want the world to see the real Japanese garden culture behind guide books and picture perfect gardens. If more people around the globe learn to understand and love Japanese gardens, we hope that also Japanese people will rediscover the Japanese garden tradition.
We firmly believe in what is called Onko-chishin (温故知新) in Japanese – creating new things and discovering new truths by learning from history and tradition. We have the rare privilege to study Japanese garden culture on our job and it is our goal to share with others what we were allowed to learn.
