Shishu - Japanese Garden Culture
|Additional DVD options||
|New from||Used from|
Illustrated by haiku from 1200 yrs of Japanese poetry, with original music from WOMAD artist Joji Hirota and with stunning images from the temples and gardens of Kyoto, Shishu (Poetic Beauty) sets out to capture the mesmerising mystique of actually being in those gardens. Drawing deep from one of the world's oldest garden traditions, it offers a profound insight into the intuitive appeal of Kyoto's gardens and the legendary beauty of the Japanese aesthetic. That aesthetic draws its power from a refined and elevated awareness of the heart, of the centre of human emotion. Being a highly integrated society, the sensitivity to and respect for individual feeling permeates all Japan's cultural forms, ikebana, sumo, shiatsu, haiku ........ the gardens are an accessible and immediate way of connecting with this realm of intuition.

What a relaxing and informative DVD - simply Fantastic! Don't miss out on the experience. Sayonara. adam richardson
I did see this film as part of a continuing education class for docents of the Seattle Japanese garden in Seattle. We all loved the film and I wanted a copy to show to future participants of my Garden Tours to Japan.
Can,t so,embody do something. This would never happen with Amazon.com here in the USA. I have purchased lots of stuff and never had a problem.
