The second garden you visited was Kyuka-en Bonsai Garden, established by Kyuzo Murata, now cared for by his son Isamu and grandson Yukio. Kyuzo Murata was instrumental and a leader in the modern suiseki world when it was established decades ago.

Hello Yvonne,
Glad you stepped out of the normal and made pictures of the stones.
Nice they where polite and recognized 'normally they do not do that'
they where not saying a 'normal person would not do that' !!
Lovely info from Bill Valavanis, yes what happens with all those stones in the garden in the future?

The stones in the gardens are "aging" to develop patina.

And nice to have Bill to take time to add to the conversation.

Hello,
Sorry Bill, i was not clear enough, when i was asking what would happen with all those stones having outdoor yoseki,
i was thinking of the children of Murata who are taking care of his collection,
not something everybody can say for sure.
Nature gives and takes, reassuring.

Hi Bill

Many thanks for your input...it is nice to actully know the name of the garden....I was told the owner of this garden maintain the emperors bonsaitrees.
I did not look to me, as stones was cared so much for any more, as many of them, easily could have been in a daisa for years already, as the yoseki was OLD.....I moved one of the stones, and could see, it had not been turned for ever.....but it was worth to note, the bench was not owergrown from weed and algues....so cared for in some sense they were.
Some of the stones with the oldest patina, looked like granite to me, and this kind of stonesurface does not change at all, it has to be found old, rubbing patina can be added......
It is the first time, I see granitestones ment for suiseki in Japan.... all of them in the same garden Smile ....I still have not seen photos, or "live" suiseki from granite though, not even thought to my self " could this be a granite"

Hi Sunip and Dick
I guess I am a stonefreak Smile
