Environmental Implications of Japan's Geology 16, Ryoanji rock garden, Kyoto.

Ryoanji rock garden, Kyoto

Ryoanji rock garden, Kyoto. -- This famous garden invites one to contemplate the natural physical environment. Only natural materials are used, and we might ask whether this is a reconstruction of the natural world in miniature. Is it meant to increase our awareness of the environment we must live in and the natural processes we cannot control?
