Top Japanese Garden

For the last 8 years, The Adachi Museum of Art in Shimane, Japan has been chosen as the best garden by the American Journal of Japanese Gardening, and I think you can see why.

Unfortunately, I have not had the privilege of visiting it, yet, but it appeals to me for it’s breathtakingly simple blend of natural elements to induce contemplation and meditation. The crisp, clean yet natural lines allow the eye and in turn the mind sufficient space to rest. For those of you who would like to visit, the gardens are open daily and as an incentive, overseas visitors can get half price entrance tickets.
