Yesterday, we had a workshop on Japanese Gardens. The keynote address was delivered by Prof Suzuki of Japan. He made a powerpoint presentation and also showed few movies. Before that, the day before, he, along with the Consul General of Japan in Kolkata, made an extensive visit of the Japanese Garden being constructed in Eco Park (scheduled to be opened in early 2017). The Japanese Landscape Experts appreciated the concept and made few helpful suggestions that will be integrated. In yesterday's presentation, he mentioned that there were more than 500 Japanese Gardens in the world outside of Japan and that this would be another addition. He showed how local adaptations were made in different countries and commented that gardens can even be scaled down to table-top portable gardens and even showed us few pics. Maybe, we can try to make such models too.
