“Said to be Japan’s smallest rock garden, it is elegant and quite famous, despite being extremely small.
On the right side of the garden, there is a flat sheet of rock, and the circular wave designs represent falling drop of water. Just as one drop of water becomes a small river, and then a large river, and finally a large ocean, this garden expresses the preciousness of one drop, and the fact tat one drop leads to a big sea”.
