Japanese gardeners, masters of illusion

The Japanese garden plays a lot on perspective, especially in the case of borrowed landscapes, shakkei. The shakkei gardens give the impression of infinite dimensions thanks to confused boundaries and games of dissimulation (miegakure, hide and reveal). Natural elements hide the real limits of the garden, while external and distant elements are incorporated into the composition (temples, pagodas, hills, mountains).
