A garden built, ruined, rebuilt, abandoned, colonised by wild mosses, then preserved – Saihōji (Kyoto’s ‘moss garden’) is a testament to the beauty of nature overcoming human works, yet also exists in a fragile environmental equilibrium under threat by ever hotter, drier weather. Through words, music, and field records, utamakura 3: Saihōji explores the garden as a place, an idea, and a symbol.
