A mountain trail that leads to a temple or a Japanese garden where the greenery is lush makes for a scenery that calms our mind. A garden that looks different through the seasons must have been purposefully designed so that those who pass by will find themselves enthralled throughout the year, be it on a day when a gentle rain is falling or the sun is brightly shining. The stepping-stones are made for the purpose of slowing our pace and the trees chosen are those that grow only up to our eye level… Let yourself think about how considerate the designs are while enjoying a cup of matcha and sweets and you will go home feeling as if your mind has been purified.
Today we’re featuring illustrations of temples and Japanese-style gardens. Feel the passage of time by looking at these different sceneries. Enjoy!
