  4. Forms of Nature Appreciation in Japan  


Nature in Japan is appreciated not for its ‘naturalness’ or ‘augustness’ but for its relation and submission to mankind.





Nature is appreciated not for itself, but through esthetizised filters at certain times in its predictable, optimised and eventisized form.
