The Japanese Garden
An excellent resource about Japanese gardens. Currently featuring 29 gardens (primarily "the historical gardens of Kyoto and its environs, including Nara"), the website was "designed simply to provide the visitor with an opportunity to visit each garden, to move through or around it, to experience it through the medium of high-quality color images, and to learn something of its history." With additional information about the origins and key elements of the Japanese garden, this is a truly outstanding resource on the topic of Japanese gardens. Also with a bibliography, glossary, and list of web links.
