I’m not usually a fan of Zen rock gardens, but this one, at Komyozenji in Dazaifu on the island of Kyushu, is the exception. It’s meant to mimic water, and so the gravel forms curving forms within the most amazing moss I saw anywhere in Japan. It may, in fact, be my favorite Japanese garden of all time.
