Tsubo: Small Japanese Gardens Melbourne

About Tsubo

Tsubo is a Japanese unit of measurement, roughly 3.3 square metre. A tsubo-niwa, or a tsubo garden is a type of very small garden in Japan. All the features of a larger garden are condensed in these compact and stylish gardens. The Japanese garden has a history of over 1000 years. When Zen was introduced to Japan in the 12th century, the monks began to realise that their gardens were a great aid to deepen their meditation, helping them to unite with the universe's living energy. Japanese gardens are not just about sophisticated designs but they are also a symbolic representation of living energy, through which we are revitalised and healed. Our goal is to create a place of meditation and peace in your living space.
