Wat je gaat doen

Experience the restorative power of nature and art while you virtually travel to Japan and immerse yourself in the Zen garden at Konchi-in. After meeting up on ZOOM we will occupy one of Kyoto's magical and sacred spaces created hundreds of years ago by Zen monks, artists, and nobles.

Through the sharing of photos, diagrams, artistically crafted videos and my live commentary you will feel as if you are physically moving through this space. As you hear deep insights about the spaces that surround us you will be able to appreciate the garden for much more than just the physical beauty.

For a sneak peak, please view:

Our time together will feel less like an online tour and more like a meaningful moment considering Japanese design, philosophy and history while virtually exploring a Zen garden of unparalleled beauty.

As this is very much an interactive experience, throughout our time together you will be encouraged to share your thoughts or ask any questions you may have on the subject matter.

※For groups larger than 8 guests please inquire for a private session.

※これは全て英語での体験です。英語でディスカッション可能な方のみご参加下さい。

Hello. I am a landscape designer living in Kyoto for the last decade. Over the last 3.5 years I have been leading walks of many of the amazing gardens here through my small business called An Design, which has become one of the highest rated tour companies in Kyoto.

Drawing on my 16 years of garden experience in the U.S. and Japan and my self-studies in Eastern philosophy since my early teens, I am able to provide experiences for my guests that are unique and from the heart.

As the only foreigner to graduate from the Kyoto Japanese Garden Training Program, I have gained insights to Japanese culture and gardens that are very rare for an outsider to obtain.

Come with me on an adventure away from the regular tourist route and immerse yourself in the exquisite and mystical nature of Kyoto.

Andrew is not only a very flexible, caring and friendly person but he’s also very skilled and has a deep knowledge of this subject. Listening to him and discovering a few more hints of the places I have been to was amazing. Some things are best explained with a skilled guide and he definitely is one. Thank you so so much!

Andrew offers his unique professional perspective as he leads this immersive experience through a little known, often overlooked impressive Zen garden in Kyoto. He combines his localised & expert knowledge with Japanese language ability, history, cultural & fun facts/anecdotes. Beautiful videos with thoughtful 360degree views, great pace, engaging narrative while providing ample time to ask questions & dialogue. Thank you Andrew for bringing me to one of your favourite places in Kyoto, today! (Z, Singapore)

Andrew is an amazing host! The videos and pictures were very well prepared and Andrew interpreted them in very detailed and understandable way. I learnt how to appreciate the garden design as well as the cultural backgrounds. I also had nice conversations with Andrew. I would recommend this enjoyable experience!

This was a wonderful way to travel to one of my favorite places without leaving home. Andrew’s temple tour genuinely evokes the tranquil, beautiful and wise qualities of the spirit of Kyoto. His humble and deep knowledge of Japan combined with how he connects to his audience makes the storytelling particularly unique and fun. I highly recommend it and will be checking out his other tours.

I learned a lot about Zen gardens in general, and the one we toured, in particular during this experience. Andrew is very knowledgeable about Zen garden history, symbology, and care. I could tell he has a deep connection to the subject. The video wasn’t my favorite experience format, but was well-thought-out.

The perfect break from COVID worries and working from home! I encourage you to drink sake and nibble Japanese crackers. Use the largest screen device you have so you can savor all the greenery. This is the perfect mix of history, Japanese landscape esthetics, and a dash of Buddhist spiritualism.
