Karesan Swimming is a new generation swimming competition taking place in a traditional Japanese style garden "Karesansui". Deviating from conventional extravagant style of Japanese gardens, Karesansui uses only pebbles to express the waterside, based on the bare original of the Zen spirit. By arranging a swimmer in this scene, the relationship between water and pebbles is expressed more closely and with humor.
This is a form of modern art which urges the renewed understanding of Japan's lost sense of beauty.
