About this book

Serves as a manual for horticultural advice, a source of inspiration for armchair gardeners and even a guidebook for travellers to Japan. Sumptuously illustrated, it explores the entire palette of plants cultivated in Japan, carefully noting which plants are authentically Japanese and which are transplants.
