2019 Japanese Garden Ranking

The Journal of Japanese Gardening,” a bi-monthly journal, was first published in 1998, in order to introduce Japanese gardens to the world. The journal is published by Douglas Roth, who is based in the U.S. Today, it has subscribers in 37, mainly English-speaking, countries. The journal’s ranking attempts to draw people’s attention to garden aesthetics and atmosphere, rather than size or fame. To do this, experts in Japan, the U.S. and Australia investigate gardens throughout Japan, and comprehensively judge them, estimating garden quality, the balance between the garden and the building, and support for the visitor.
