From prominent temple gardens in Kyoto to the tranquil stone oasis at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Shiro Nakane is keeping the art of the traditional Japanese garden alive. Favoring subdued assemblages of stones and greenery over lush florals, the Japanese garden is revered for its calm, meditative quality. Son of garden master Kinsaku Nakane, Shiro began studying the craft as a young boy and has been following in his father's footsteps ever since.

On April 21, Shiro comes to Japan Society to share his insights on Japanese garden design gained through a lifetime of work in the field.

This event will be followed by a reception. For more information, please email
