Sakuteiki

Visions of the Japanese Garden

2001, Tuttle

 

   The Sakuteiki, or "Records of Garden Making," was written nearly one thousand years ago. It is the oldest existing text on Japanese gardening — or any kind of gardening — in the world. In this edition of the Sakuteiki the authors provide both an English-language translation of this classic work and an introduction to the cultural and historical context that led to the development of Japanese gardening.
