Flower Arranging and Gardening
Another tradition that the Buddhists brought to Japan was flower arranging. One of the things they did was grow Bonsai trees. Bonsai trees are mini trees or shrubs grown in a pot or tray. They also would have Zen Gardens. They help people think quietly. The Zen Gardens were usually arranged with rocks, pathways and some trees and flowers. Gardening and arranging flowers are still important in Japan today.
