Anybody when the show will be next year?

I have to request vacation a year in advance and I am hoping to go to Japan and visit Kokufu at the same time. Anybody when it will be?

Are organized trips worth it?

Contact Bill Valavanis... I don't know if he goes every year... but I know he takes groups. And from what I hear it's a wonderful way to go about it, because he has so many connections over there you get to visit a lot of the best gardens.

But its the Green Club you want to go to... :D I've seen photos only, but I can't imagine all of that bonsai - pots - stands - slabs - etc in a multi-story building for sale... makes me shiver just thinking about it. lol

The 2011 Kokufu Bonsai Ten will be held on February 13-20 at the new temporary location in Asakusa, near Ueno.

I will be leading a tour to that exhibition and to see other interesting bonsai sites as well.

darnit! I already picked the first two weeks of February based on all the previous kokufu-ten. I'll have to call to change that.

Where can I find info on the tours you might be organizing?

So if it's in a new place... is it still close to the Green Club so folks can go to the sale?? :confused:

[In 2011 and 2012 the show will be moving to the Tokyo Metropolitan Industrial Trade Center, located near the Asakusa Kannon Temple in Asakusa less than a mile to the east of Ueno while the museum is remodeled/rebuilt.]
