Yokoso Japanese Gardens was asked to build an exhibition-stand at the Interkoi in Kalkar, Germany. The idea was to create a little piece of Kyoto. We constructed a small 4 x 4 meter teahouse/clients area from scratch. The material we used was mainly Western Red Cedar. Around the teahouse we built a wonderful small Japanese garden using a variety of great authentic Japanese rocks, ornaments and trees.
The Japanese garden consisted of 2 small elevated borders featuring a very old white Pine, Enkianthus Campanulatus, Acer Palmatums, ferns and Ophiopogon grasses. In the garden we placed a stunning antique Kasuga stone lantern, antique reclamed mill stones, some very big rocks and granite slabs. Altogether the result was a 'close to perfection' piece of Kyoto. The veranda soon became a favorite spot for the visitors to relax and daydream...
