Twenty years ago, Dan Pearson was invited to make a garden at the 240-hectare Tokachi Millennium Forest in Hokkaido, Japan. By tuning into the physical and cultural essence of the place and applying a light touch in terms of cultivation, this world-class designer created a remarkable place which has its heart in Japan's long-held respect for nature and its head in contemporary ecological planting design.
Join him for a look at the creation of this garden and its ongoing evolution over the past two decades under the skilful custodianship of Midori Shintani and marvel at how together they have achieved such a harmonious interplay between garden and location.
