For a split second, I thought it was Ginkakuji Temple in Kyoto. Nice.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"We fill our gardens with dense plantings, they spread out a flat expanse of grass."Tanizaki sums up the contrast between East and West as being satisfied with one's surroundings versus the determination to improve one's lot, respectively. This garden in San Francisco illustrates the cultural cross-fertilization that has happened in the ensuing 80 years since Tanizaki wrote his essay, one that has seen Asian sensibilities infuse Western contexts. The aesthetic appreciation described in In Praise of Shadows is shared by many around the world, but it runs the risk of being a style rather than something that permeates thought and experience. Tanizaki gives those willing an excellent primer for learning to appreciate the shadows of light and life.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Cottages: The Comfort Food of Architecture
Even if the style is unexpected! We are used to cottages in a Western context, but the same instinct is pervasive worldwide, as in this fabulous Japanese-style cottage. Even the curvature of the path beckons us to come closer.
