Natural Beauty in the Middle of Tokyo (VIDEO)

Editor’s Note:
The following is reshared from our friends at DigitalHub.JP, a Tokyo-based multimedia production & distribution...uhhh, hub. Their video below was shot with the Sony α7S, a respectably versatile rig that we reviewed in great detail.

Archetypal Japanese Gardens...and Something More

Some are lucky enough to visit one, and many more are at least familiar with the image of an impeccably kept, meticulously manicured, obsessively tended Japanese garden. Generally embracing a minimalist aesthetic, they are widely believed to express the purest essence of traditional Japanese design and culture. The archetypal versions are beautiful and impactful, to be sure, but there’s also much to appreciate from a Japanese garden that’s allowed to change with the seasons, to be subject to its time, place, and the wear and chaos of nature.

The garden adjacent to the prestigious yet somewhat hidden away Hatakeyama Memorial Museum of Fine Art is a fine example of the latter, and DigitalHub.JP’s beautifully crafted video profile, hosted by the charming Mrs. Hatakeyama herself, gives a succinct, informative history of the garden and its role in the museum’s history.

History and Seasonal Beauty in the Hatakeyama Museum Garden

Statement from DigitalHub.JP: Opened in 1964, the Hatakeyama Memorial Museum of Fine Art was established as a private art museum to display Japanese, Chinese, and Korean historical art objects, focusing on arts related to the tea ceremony. The collections also include paintings, calligraphy, pottery, lacquerware, and Noh costumes.

In order to visit the museum, one must pass through the garden and experience the particular features of the season, and here we place the garden in a historical context, detailing its contemporary role as gateway to the expansive, highly regarded Hatakeyama art collection.
