Here is a gravel pathway inside the grounds of one of the palaces we visited - I think this was in Kyoto. Notice the very neatly curving shallow drainage trench along the edge. Prevents flooding along the path. So Japanese. They think of everything.

And the path drainage trench lined on both sides with stone triangles ... as you wrote, "so Japanese".

Not only do they think of everything, they execute it precisely. The only recent exception that comes to mind is Fukushima.
