Japan: Ryōanji
Japan holds the Peaceful Dragon, Ryōanji Garden. Ryōanji is a rock Zen garden. Founded in 1473 by Katsumoto Hosokawa, it took several decades to be complete. They say the best time to visit it is in the winter, under snow. The garden is one of the most famous gardens in Japan, made solely of rock, sand and dry elements. See some images of Ryōanji, www.sacred-destinations.com/japan/kyoto-ryoanji.htm

The Ryōanji Garden is very simple, but those who have been there say it is revealing. The simplicity of the garden is that it is composed of a set of rocks. The stones are arranged in such way that it is impossible to see all the set of rocks at once. No matter where you are in the garden, one set will always be hidden.
