The Fundación Japón is continuing its series of lectures on the Japanese garden. This afternoon at 4 p.m., Prof. Hiroyuki Tsujii, general manager of Tsujii Landscape Co, Ltd., will give a lecture on the morphology of the terrain and the placement of rocks.
In order to display a beautiful landscape, the Japanese garden varieties of pond garden (chisen), dry landscape (karesansui) and tea garden make use of traditional techniques such as shukkei (miniaturisation), shakkei (borrowed landscape) or mitate (using some elements of nature to imitate other elements). These techniques create a unique beauty by harmonising different natural elements such as trees and shrubs, stones, hills, waterfalls and ponds in the same space, which in turn must blend in with the climate and terrain of the area. Hiroyuki Tsujii will explain the techniques of artificial hills (how the morphology of the terrain is shaped) and stone laying (how natural stones are arranged), two elements that are the cornerstones of any Japanese garden using the miniature garden. Event in Japanese with translation into English. Free of charge until full capacity is reached. Registration is required to attend through this link.
