The second Bronze Prize winning layout is a mountainous layout from Japan. This type of layout is usually produced by heaping up Ryuoh Stone high for expressing a steep rock mountain, but in this layout the creator expressed a waterfall and mountain stream by white band of Ryuoh Stone and white cosmetic sand, and succeeded to make a large scale layout. The nicely grown plants are used for expressing trees covering the mountain surface,and their color gives a soft impression.
