Visiting Japanese gardens is a highly spiritual experience, a moment of total calm and relaxation. The sounds of running water and singing birds, the scent of flowers, the aparently wild, but perfectly studied composition, all invites to forget about anything but the present moment. What can be more important than the contemplation of a water lilly or a tree? A Japanese woman taught me that “every day is a good day”, food for thought while scrolling in Kyoto gardens.
