Japanese gardens possess a distinct beauty and allure differing from Western gardens. Using the natural environment as a factor in their making, they are not made into circles or squares. Hills are made, stones are gathered, ponds are filled with water and fields are shaped, tress planted and trimmed. In this way, the gardens can leave impressions of peacefulness and calm within the hearts of those viewing them. Upon entering the Edo Period, rulers of various countries set up residences in Edo, and large gardens were developed one after another. Development of these gardens became popular not only in Edo, but in and around castles all over the country. Later, these gardens and gardens dubbed Japanese gardens became mainstream. In addition, elements of Buddhism, tea-ceremony, Confucianism and Chinese patterns had an influence on their development.
