Welcome to Food and Impressions

I hope you can find some hints and tips that will save you some time, time that I spent doing something I like: searching, reading, crossing, selecting and finally, I hope, one day, trying.

Japan: gardens, temples and tea






Japan: gardens, temples and tea

Some interesting sites about:

Japanese Gardens

Clifton Olds of Bowdoin College created an online Japanese Gardens resource in conjunction with Bowdoin College's Department of Information Technology, see at Bowdoin College Japanese Gardens

Mark Schumacher site has a Garden section with detailed description of Rock Gardens, Dry Landscapes, Hill Gardens, Karesansui, Kasan, Tsukiyama and others.



Japanese Temples

A nice site for Temples in Kyoto.


Japanese Tea Ceremony

I could not find any information on the people running this comprehensive site on the Japanese Tea Ceremony

There is also the Wikipedia page.
