Episode

The garden of Murin-An, in central Kyoto, was made in the late nineteenth century by Aritomo Yamagata, a wealthy statesman.

 He acquired a 3000-square metre plot that then belonged to the monks of the  temple  Nanzen ji, one of the most influential in Kyoto. The garden represents the surrounding landscape according to the shakkei principle of "borrowed scenery". Stones feature prominently. They are used for paths, as stepping stones and to make little beaches. Above all, they are host to a wide range of mosses, for which the garden of Murin-An is famous.
