A Japanese Zen Rock Garden Made From Sweets

In Japan, Zen rock gardens are considered, if nothing else, a source of serenity and relaxation. Tokyo city dwellers will often travel all the way to Kyoto just to sample the revered gardens housed within local shrines. Another source of relaxation – enjoying Japanese sweets – doesn’t necessarily go hand-in-hand with rock gardens. But combining these two modern-day pleasures in an elegant design is the Shinan-ji Temple Rock Garden. Named after a fictional temple, the miniature rock garden is actually made from entirely edible ingredients that include black sesame cubes (shaped like rocks) and a bed of sugar (resembling sand).

 

The unique collaboration is the work of art directors Tomonori Saito and Shohei Sawada, who enlisted Japanese wagashi artisan Motohiro Inaba to help make their sweet garden a reality. The adorable wooden rake included in the set can not be eaten.

Comparing The Top Frameworks For Building Hybrid Mobile Apps

framework_7-1024x521

A hybrid app is just a regular mobile optimized website, written in CSS, HTML and JavaScript, that is displayed in a webview (this is a basically a stripped down web browser). The advantage is that you only need to write a single application, which in most cases runs unmodified on Android, iOS and Windows Phone. Most of the frameworks listed in this article do this using Cordova or PhoneGap, which give you a bridge to the device APIs in JavaScript.

In this article we’re going to compare the most popular JavaScript frameworks for building hybrid and native mobile apps. Scroll to the bottom of the article to see the scores.
