Japanese rock gardens, sometimes called karesansui or zen gardens, were influenced by Zen Buddhism and can be found at many Zen temples in Japan. Originally their creation and maintenance was a form of meditation itself. Japanese gardens are living works of art in which the plants and trees are ever changing with the seasons. As they grow and mature, they are constantly sculpted to maintain and enhance the overall experience. In this way a Japanese garden is never the same and never really finished.
