The gardens of Japan, like many of the country’s arts, embody the richness and complexity of Japanese culture. Like gardens themselves, the development of early Japanese art and aesthetics is a study of a work in progress; ideas and influences were imported from China and Korea and in time were subsequently transformed into something specifically Japanese. Garden designer and scholar Marc Peter Keane details the early development of Japanese gardens and examines the connections between these gardens and their Korean predecessors.

Tickets: $10, Japan Society & The Korea Society members & seniors $8, students $5.
