A kaiyu-shiki or strolling garden
Chaniwa Gardens are built for holding tea ceremonies. There is usually a tea house where the ceremonies occur, and the styles of both the hut and garden are based on the simple concepts of the sado.
Usually, there are stepping stones leading to the tea house, stone lanterns, and stone basins (tsukubai) where guests purify themselves before a ceremony.
Japanese gardens might also fall into one of these styles:
- Kanshoh-style gardens which are viewed from a residence.
- Pond gardens, for viewing from a boat.
- Strolling gardens (kaiyū-shiki), for viewing a sequence of effects from a path which circumnavigates the garden.
