Houses and Gardens of Kyoto: Revised with a new foreword by Matthew Stavros



Kyoto, considered the quintessential birthplace of Japanese culture, has survived centuries of damage and the onslaught of modernization, yet remains the undisputed home of the country's architectural and cultural history. This vibrant collection of Japanese garden design and landscaping photographs introduces a wide variety of traditional houses, from aristocratic villas, temple residences, and merchant townhouses, to ryokan inns and private retreats each uniquely equipped with their own garden space. Houses And Gardens of Kyoto features residences many of which have never before been photographed or shown in any other book hand-picked by photographer Akihiko Seki. The accompanying text is informative and is sure to be a standard reference guide on the topic for years to come. Each entry in this Japanese gardening and landscape design book is a colourful example of the finest classic Japanese houses and garden styles, and will serve as a lasting inspiration to anyone who is captivated by Japanese architecture and design.
