I go back regularly to Japan (1 to 2 times/year) to visit nurseries, meet some specialist professionals to discover more about the methods and the philosophy around japanese pruning. linked to japanese garden landscaping. I also go back to work with my teachers Mr OBAYASHI (whose family are japanese pruning gardners since 18 generations), and and I sincerely thank Mr MORIMAE, with whom I began my japanese pruning training, and whose grandfather was a Japanese Landscape Master for the imperial gardens.

The SPIRITUAL JAPAN NIWAKI TOUR is a study tour of 12 days which takes place in Kyoto and its surroundings, on the theme of Japanese niwaki and gardens.

Beyond the colossal sum of technical and aesthetic information that I will give you on the art of the Japanese garden, it is an initiatory journey, an immersion in a long-hidden Japan, the garden world, a world of contrasts such as the colors of pines and black cedars, mosses and granite and basalt stones. 

During these 12 days we work to give shape to a new model of social life where art and beauty become a generator of a daily economy and even more of hope and vitality. We take advantage of this fascinating initiatory journey, because it is quite particular, to think about our condition of being alive and to give another measure to the creation (of our life), far from the urgencies of urbanity and modern life.
