17 Peaceful Pictures of Japanese Rock Gardens

Like most Japanese gardens, rock gardens are all about creating a zen atmosphere, which is why they’re often referred to as zen gardens. There is a lot of symbolism and imagery involved when creating a rock garden, with the rocks representing mountains, Buddha, or an emperor. The gravel is reminiscent of ripples in water and it takes a lot of concentration to perfectly shape the undulating lines, all while not stepping on ones already formed. So try to relax, and focus on feeling at peace as you take a look at these pictures of Japanese Rock Gardens.
