Narrow would not be good unless you indend a river bed.  In this case, it would be set with stones along its edge and meander with crooks and elbows.  Look at some of the examples on the web.  Some examples are in www.japanesegardening.org under Gardens in Japan.

A colleague of mine had the opportunity to go to Japan on an assignment for a year and during this time he managed to take a great deal of photo's, he too being interested in Japanese gardens. On one occasion he booked himself into a cheap motell and boy was he suprised to see what was in the backyard.  :o

Something along these lines were what I was thinking in regards to the shapes of "islands" in my garden.  :)
