Japanese Style Gardens of the Pacific West Coast

By Kendall H. Brown, Melba Levich

Reviews From Booklist

This elegant book begins with Brown's absorbing history of Japanese-style gardens in North America. He explains that in the twentieth century, more large-scale public Japanese-style gardens were built outside of Japan than within; the bulk of these were built in North America, particularly along the Pacific coast. As Melba Levick's stunning color photographs show, the elements of these 20 gardens are stone lanterns, torii gates, arched and zigzag bridges, rocks, sand, ponds, and flowers. The gardens are in California, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia. They range from the oldest, the Japanese Tea Garden at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco and the Japanese Friendship Garden at Balboa Park in San Diego, to those in private retreats and to those sponsored by universities and corporations. Each is explained in terms of its place in the evolution of the Japanese-style garden and the relation of its function to its design. George Cohen
