Edible Zen Rock Garden Made From Japanese Sweets.
Zen rock gardens are typically composed of carefully placed rocks, surrounded by sand that is raked to represent water ripples. They’re supposed to inspire a meditative state of calm and relaxation. They’re not supposed to inspire hunger and a sudden urge to put it in your mouth.
In Japan, Zen rock gardens are considered, if nothing else, a source of serenity and relaxation. Tokyo city dwellers will often travel all the way to Kyoto just to sample the revered gardens housed within local shrines. Another source of relaxation – enjoying Japanese sweets – doesn’t necessarily go hand-in-hand with rock gardens.
The unique collaboration is the work of art directors Tomonori Saito and Shohei Sawada, who enlisted Japanese wagashi artisan Motohiro Inaba to help make their sweet garden a reality. The adorable wooden rake included in the set can not be eaten.
