Mirei Shigemori undoubtedly set the rules by which Japanese landscape architects operated for the rest of the 20th century. This title is the story of his life through words and works, from his early life and influences, to the founding the Kyoto Garden Society in 1932 and eventually through seventeen of his most seminal gardens before his death in 1975. Now presented in a new, revised edition.
