MORE PEACEFUL SCENES
FROM THE JAPANESE GARDEN,
MISSOURI BOTANICAL GARDEN

SEIWA-EN,
the "garden of pure, clear harmony and peace,"
is one of the largest traditional Japanese gardens
in North America.
We're lucky to have this 14-acre garden
at Missouri Botanical Garden.

The design incorporates many principles
of Japanese aesthetics drawn from Zen Buddhism,
such as "suggestion, naturalness and asymmetry
within the landscape."
