At the famous Tsuru-Kame Garden in Kyoto, there is a stunningly beautiful crane with its wings spread, which was created from a pine tree. There is also a sturdy tortoise created from stones, which symbolizes silence. The symbolic meaning for both of these unique creations are heightened by a water and light display. The dynamic design, supported by delicate skills, gives birth to the garden’s unique story. In the story, the pine tree (Crane) and the stones (Tortoise) are not only the expression of a crane and a tortoise but the symbols of “stillness and motion”. Stillness represents today’s peace of mind and motion represents energy for tomorrow. Good luck and happiness are believed to come from this philosophy of “stillness and motion”
