Welcome! If you are interested in Japanese gardening, poetry, or historical fiction set in Japan, then this website is for you. More specifically, the goal of this site is to provide English language information about Shisendo and its builder, the 17th century Japanese poet Ishikawa Jozan. If the visit makes you curious enough to read the novel based on his life story, so much the better. Feel free to drop me a line by email (see Contact Me below).
Lately, the menus haven't been working well on all devices. If that is the case for you, here is a collection of links to facilitate access.
