"The Sakuteiki", or "Records of Garden Making," was written nearly one thousand years ago. It is the oldest existing text on Japanese gardening - or any kind of gardening - in the world. In this edition of the "Sakuteiki", the authors provide both an English-language translation of this classic work and an introduction to the cultural and historical context that led to the development of Japanese gardening.
About the Author

He has worked as the Chairman of the Japanese Garden Academic Society, regional chief of the Gardening Academic Society and chief researcher of the Research Center for Japanese Garden Art. Marc P. Keane, a licensed landscape architect and garden designer, went to Japan in 1985 and since then has been creating and building gardens for companies, temples and private residences. Mr. Keane is also the author of "Japanese Garden Design."
