The Beauty of Moss (4'58")
Traditional Japanese gardens are the embodiment of an ancient aesthetic sense, and moss is one of their key elements. Ohara, Kyoto, has the perfect environment for moss to grow, and at Ohara's Sanzen-in Temple we find one of the most famous moss gardens. Representing the beauty of passing time, moss is a living expression of the philosophy of wabi-sabi. An Ohara gardener who makes innovative terrariums with the local moss tells us how moss can teach us how to achieve a sustainable relationship with nature.
