I'd like to have eavesdropped on the comments that came out of that culture clash.
The Japanese gardens laid out in Edwardian times were mostly incidents in much larger garden schemes.
They understood, too, how gardens should reflect and enhance the spirit of a place.
Perhaps garden makers of the 18th century could get closer than us to understanding an authentic Japanese garden.
They wouldn't have found it any easier than we do to grapple with the philosophical underpinning, but someone like Capability Brown would have been in complete sympathy with the principle of tweaking nature.
There are some fabulous examples in the plant centre at Wisley but one I looked at cost £995, the other £1,295.
There's a practical difficulty, too, in creating the Japanese look in a town garden.
