枯山水 Dry landscape Garden
Dry landscape style Garden is only consisting of the paving sands and stones, without using of aquatic element, the paved sands represent the water, or in the consideration of bigger picture, the sea, or just say it's Pacific ocean, that's very unique gardening concept in the world.
