It was really quite an experience seeing this garden: it was like I just stepped right into the very fabric of Japan. Everything looked so authentic and well-maintained. Especially those windy maple trees that we never get to see here in America; Japan is the holy grail of garden decorating. I certainly can see why so many people, especially here in the Northwest, are so obsessed with Japanese culture: their history of religion and spirituality sparks plenty of creative inspiration.
They even managed to take over our pop culture with the Pokémon Go craze, and influenced the movies we like to watch. Hayao Miyazaki currently has quite a large following here in America, with classics such as Princess Monoke, Howl's Moving Castle, and Spirited Away, the latter I reviewed this week with an autism lesson included. You also can take a look at autism lessons I pulled out of two other more recent Japanese-inspired animated features, including Disney's Big Hero 6 and the stop-motion Kubo and the Two Strings. Wow, just typing this right now makes me want to go to Japan and explore their culture. But that's why we've got these pictures right? For those of us who can't afford the trip?
