Tools for soundscape design have tended to focus on noise-exposed situations like urban parks and squares. Less attention has been given to multisensory interaction, movement, and other phenomenological aspects. This paper addresses the gap by studying the Japanese garden tradition, where such issues have been given high priority. The paper is the second of two reporting on autoethnographic field studies carried out in 88 Japanese gardens. Ten new Soundscape Actions are introduced and discussed in relation to previous research. Conclusively, the paper addresses the potential for future applications and developments of the tool.
