Hamilton Gardens - Japanese Garden of Contemplation

By Aaron Radford -

The Japanese Garden of Contemplation follows ancient rules of landscape design to create a calm, restful space. Take some time to contemplate the carefully laid out arrangements from your seat in the Abbott’s Quarters, and after a moment you will feel your mind relax into the serene, peaceful landscape.  This is a garden that embraces contradiction in all its forms: you will see contradictory pairs such as movement/stillness, complexity/simplicity, vastness/ smallness, and even wet/dry.
