Konpira-san
Konpira-san
Designers: R-Two Ltd, Ryuji Izumi / Sponsors: Daitetsu Co Ltd, Shikoku Chemicals Corporation / Contractors: R-Two Ltd, Garden Landscapes.

This garden has been inspired by Konpira-san, a mountain and Shinto shrine in Kagawa, Japan that is noted for the 1368 steps leading from the base of the mountain to the shrine above. A stone wall of aji granite symbolises the steps and castle. The ukijima (floating islands) evoke the islands of the Seto Inland Sea when viewed from the top of the mountain, represented here by the deck. Turf depicting the UK and a pine signifying Japan are included in the design, uniting the two nations in this modern, Japanese-style garden. Konpira-san presents a small slice of what Kagawa has to offer, highlighting this historically significant landmark and utilising materials that can be found in the region.
