Tranquil and serene are the words that come into my mind when I think about a Japanese garden. Here at this site you can learn all about Japanese gardens. From the elements that make up the composition to the styles of a certain period of time.
You can navigate through the site through the menu at the top of the page, which goes through the overview of the site, origins, elements, and glossary of the gardens and the site it’s self.
I like the layout of this site, as it invokes to me both the things I look for in a site. Ease of navigation and a wonderful color scheme that is both beautiful as well as easy on the eyes.
My favorite part of this site is the garden menu. Once you choose a garden you can look at highlights of it, or you choose to tour the garden and go through different elements of the garden with really nice photographs, you can also learn some of the history of the particular garden that you are in.
My favorite gardens are Murin-an, Ryogen-in, Tenryu-ji, and Chishaku- in. I like them because they are very soothing to look at—I felt as though I was sitting there contemplating those gardens and never be bored by them.
