RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2014

Togenkyo - A Paradise on Earth


Award: Best Artisan Garden

Award: Gold Medal

Designed by: Kazuyuki Ishihara

Built by: Ishihara Kazuyuki Design Laboratory Co Ltd

Sponsored by: Cat’s Co Ltd, Ishihara Kazuyuki Design Laboratory Co Ltd, Ishiken Co Ltd


This garden has been inspired by the fable of Togenkyo, a place of beautiful scenery that can help people to forget their troubles and strife, but that once visited cannot be revisited.


This beautiful garden has been designed to capture the concept of Togenkyo, bringing the idea to a global audience at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The planting scheme features plenty of greenery, chosen to help fix an image of the garden in visitors’ minds, so that they can take the memory of the scenery away with them to recall and be comforted by when they are feeling troubled.
