Additional Reviews:

"The book is designed not only to showcase the Zen aesthetics exemplified in the wooden structures and sculptured landscapes, but also as a primer on Zen itself. Readers will gain real insights into both the images on the page and the sites themselves, should they have the chance to visit." — Japan Visitor

"This book will inspire you as well to take a different approach to sightseeing. It provides very practical information about the different zen gardens all over town and background information that you'll definitely want to read." — The Travel Tester blog

"…the author vividly captures the scenery visitors are mesmerized by, so it's best for you to follow the path set out by the author as you imagine yourself exploring Kyoto." — JQ Magazine

"Not only is this a cultural, rather than a spiritual guide, but there is information about gardens, monastic grounds and buildings, temple histories, Zen practice, restaurants and even music (e.g., the shakuhachi). This is too an exhaustive compendium of Zen temples and gardens in the great city of Kyoto, making it an indispensable guide for visitors as well as for students, researchers, and residents alike." — George A. Keyworth, Assistant Professor of East Asian Religions, University of Saskatchewan
