Travelling through Japan one is noticing certain reoccurring shapes and symmetries which are mirrored in nature. Some being more obvious like the traditional roof shapes (pictures 1,2,3), which resemble the most famous mountain of the country Fuji-san, others are hidden and have to be found by the foreign visitor. While in general the Japanese prefer strong lines and square patterns over round ones, the curated gardens feature very often soft and oval shapes making for a relaxing and nice atmosphere (pictures 4,5,6).
