Havens, Thomas RH. Parkscapes: Green Spaces in Modern Japan

Cl. Wild Peony 2010

Book ID: 84800

Examines the history of Japan's urban and national parks from the early Meiji period to today. After gradual processes beginning with government seizure of private lands in the 19th century and continuing into the modern balance of private and public interests, one seventh of Japan is dedicated to park spaces, and Parkscapes offers a fascinating look into the development and importance of these parks.
