A landscape with deeper meaningIn the gardens of Japan, nature is rarefied, abstracted, and interpreted to reveal lessons about life and our own place in the larger scheme of things. Symbolic elements imbue the landscape with deeper meaning. Among the major features of the Japanese Garden are water, including the pond, which shapes and reflects vistas, and a waterfall, which denotes constant change. A shire dedicated to the Shinto god of the harvest is nestled in the pine grove. Found throughout the Japanese Garden are stone lanterns, used today for sculptural effect. With its lanterns, stones, pond, and evergreens, as well as its bridges and other architectural elements, the Japanese garden retain its beauty in all the seasons.
