Josei Park, Kochi Castle Garden - Although Kochi Castle has no existing Japanese garden in its modern incarnation, Josei Park just outside of the castle grounds provides a pleasant introduction to a visit to Kochi-jo. The pond garden is modern in design with a wooden zig-zag bridge over the pond with a stone garden at its edge. The arrangement of stones is one of the most important elements in a Japanese Garden. In the oldest preserved manual of Japanese gardening, garden making was called "placement of stones". Zen gardens with their stone arrangements are usually the first association people have when considering Japanese gardens whether they are associated with Zen Buddhist, or not.
