The Journal of Japanese Gardening, also known as Sukiya Living Magazine, has released its annual rating of Japanese gardens. The most beautiful garden selected from among 900 Japanese art gardens has been the one at the Adachi Museum of Art in Shimane - for the 16th time in a row.

Here's their list of the top gardens in 2016. Have you visited any of them?

Back in the 70's I went to a beautiful garden somewhere near Fukuoka. Here I am almost 70 years old and traveled all over , but I never have seen anything more beautiful then that place. I remember the arched bridges and white swans in a pond. I thought it was heaven on earth.
