The amazingly beautiful Garden Rikugien is an example of the Japanese landscape art in the style of kai-yu - meaning that the garden visitor should walk through a seasonal garden.
The creators of this garden, back in the XVIII century, were great admirers of the Waka poetry, and so they decided to embody in the garden plants' compositions the 88 poetic images taken from the poetic anthologies "Man'yushu" and "Kokinsu".
