I often include viewing gardens as a part of my solo travel adventures. However, when it comes to Japan, exploring gardens and nature is a must. Japanese culture expresses much though gardens, including the aesthetics, some of the philosophy of the people, and even some of the spiritual life of Japan. On the new episode of my solo travel podcast, Solo Travel Talk, I tell you all about the gardens that are available to experience in Japan.
Some of the questions answered on this episode:
What types of gardens can visitors find in Japan?
Is nature part of the spiritual life in Japan?
Is there a difference between Japanese gardens and shrines?
What gardens does Astrid recommend in Japan?
Is the Peace Garden in Hiroshima worth visiting?
