Japanese Garden Web Showcase
The Japanese Gardening websites in this section are chosen for excellent technique, great gardens, and new ideas. This Showcase is submitted by Edzard Teubert of Fuzei Co. Ltd. See comments and a link to the showcase here: Showcase: Sone Zoen Co., Inc.
In the Japanese Gardening Organization's Showcase Websites, we focus on studies of fine work from which techniques may be observed, studied and incorporated for inclusion in ones own garden, ones own skills as a professional or student of Japanese gardening. We hope to nurture conversation and offer the opportunity for insightful discussion within the Forum that strives to perpetuate the beauty of that interface betwixt man and nature - our gardens.Showcase: Masao Sone: Sone Zoen, Ltd.

The garden is based on a painterly theme called "The Three Laughers of the Tiger Glen", an ancient Chinese parable that reflects on the idea that a narrow adherance to any one philosophy is contrary to true wisdom. From July to September, 2011, Mr. Keane will share images and comments about the process of building the garden HERE.
