I need help on making a 1/6 scale one. I have all the parts and books on "how to" make a real one (1/1) scale but I'm still at a lost. Has anyone here made one?

I have not, but I sure would like to see one. :)

Many years ago I grew Bonsai that were probably close to 1:6th scale however. For "model" advice I would look up information on Saikei, and Bonkei. There should be plenty of information that would carry over from these tray landscapes to whatever it is you are trying to do.

Could you post some example images of your vision of Japanese Garden? I ask because I have seen many types, and styles vary dramatically.

Examples of miniature Bonsai... (Note that this is Doll House Furniture, [1/12th] but you get the idea of size from this.)

Japanese stone gardens would be a lot easier I think, if that counts, however.

A Zen garden.

Well I made this Koi pond to put in it. So I was thinking of using some greenery. I also have a few other things. I have enough stuff to make a couple of gardens. I just would love to see if someone has made a 1/6 version.

That is an excellent koi pond maywong. :)

I think whatever you choose to make will be excellent. Because I once grew bonsai, I always had them in tray landscapes, so I never thought about making a 1:6th garden really. I hope I get to see one. :)

Thanks, I hope to make one soon. I'm surprised that someone else hasn't already made one.
