Charmed by gardening, it has past more than 30 years since Yasushi Sakai began his career in this field. A current trend in Japanese Gardens is “natural taste” and zoki (brushes)-planted gardens. The style was established by world-renowned Japanese landscape architect, Juki Iida in 1960. Sakai’s mentor/teacher was very much influenced by Iida’s works as well as his philosophy, “natural taste” in comparison to conventional Japanese gardening, is the root of Sakai’s work. His motto is to create a harmonious balance in a given space and environment for those who live in, see and feel. The connection between human beings and the nature has been said to be lessen, at least felt that way, it is landscape architects’ mission to create and re-create the contact. Traditional Japanese gardens have an important message to us. “I would like to create such a therapeutic space through Japanese gardens.” said Sakai.
