JGarden Description:Presents exhibitions of chanoyu (tea ceremony) utensil combinations centering on the pieces collected by the modern tea aesthete, Kitamura Kinjiro. The garden is a recent addition designed by Kobayashi & Associates in Seattle.

To get there, take the Kyoto-shi Bus: No. 205 to the [Kawaramachi Imadegawa] stop. 




Recall the vistas of various famous places, select what attracts you and add your own interpretation. It is best to use this as a theme to design the whole of the garden while adding just the right amount of changes.
