Katsura Imperial Villa 桂離宮, Nishikyō-ku 西京区, Kyoto built by Prince Hachijō Toshihito 智仁 (1579–1629). He wrote “Far away, in the country village of Katsura, the reflection of the moon upon the water is clear and tranquil.” Katsura became influential to modernist architects including Le Corbusier, Walter Gropius, and New Wave Australian Architects Philip Cox, Peter Muller, and Neville Gruzman who visited in the late 1950s and 1960s.
