Original Japanese roof tiles known as Kawara (瓦) are widely used as decoration in the traditional Japanese garden. When the roof of a building is being renovated, the old roof tiles are given a new purpose by adding them to the garden. Some people might perceive this as odd, but Japanese roof tiles are in a league of their own. They can be considered valuable pieces of art, especially if they are antique. The roof tiles consist of different detailed shapes and carvings that really add to the authenticity of Japanese architecture and gardens alike.
