    The garden is not significant for its elements however but rather for the spectacular way in which the Sung landscape painting tradition is turned into three dimensional form Karl Hennig s analysis concludes that the turtle and crane islands are the earliest part of the garden and were probably constructed by the sub temple s founder Kogaku Shuko 1464 1548 He was likely assisted by the the outcaste riverbank people that were the real garden makers of the time The landscape painter Soami may also have been influential though it is unclear what role he played It is certain that he painted several of the screens in the hall itself The garden s layout is a clear metaphor for the human path through life The river of life begins in the northeast with the clipped camellia of Mount Horai the land of the immortals It plunges through the narrow rapids of youth broadening to emerge into adulthood The rocks in the stream course represent the trials and tribulations that bring maturity By the time one reaches the famous stone treasure boat originally belonged to Ashikaga Yoshimasa but was only added in summer of 1959 when the archives revealed one used to exist at this location in the east garden one has gained the wealth of experience The small turtle swimming against the stream at once represents the classic symbol of good fortune and the futility of swimming against the flow of time The south garden is the vast white gravel void at the end of life with two gravel cones the only barriers to reaching the lone Bodhi tree under which the Buddha realized satori at the far corner For the Zen monk the garden must also represent the trials of meditating on the paradoxical koans of the Rinzai Zen

    Naoharu Aihara 1870 1941 to do the gardens Aihara was descended from a line of Imperial gardens based Koyobashi Tokyo The garden is sits on a hillside with a view of Silicon Valley then knonas the Valley of Heart s Delight The overall design approach called for an Upper House and Lower House with a hill and pond garden weaving them together The work was done in the sanso or country villa style popular in the late Edo period The Upper House with its dramatic views was aligned for moon viewing and was finished in 1917 It is designed as a rustic shoin style teahouse with a study and tokonoma The Lower House was completed in 1922 It is somewhat more elaborate with redwood frame and wood siding All of the garden and achitectural elements were constructed to the highest standards The Ms Stine brought the finest craftsmen from Japan and this remains an outstanding example of Meiji era garden art The property was sold to Major C L Tilden an East Bay financier in 1932 His only contribution was the addition of a large main gate to the gardens Through the war and subsequent years the garden was not maintained at the same level and by 1966 had fallen into a state of neglect The City of Saratoga rescued it from subdivision and hired Tanso Ishihara a Kyoto garden builder to restore the garden He added some new elements such as the Camelia garden and trails He repaired the pond waterfalls and pathway and heavily pruned the garden In collaboration with Kiyoshi Yasui the architect fo the Imperial Household Agency responsible for the restoration of Katsura he created a master plan for expanding the gardens to fill the entire 18 acre site Ishihara died in an accident in 1980
