Although I never met the man, I hear he had one of the best collection of bonsai in all of japan. I also heard & read that he did a lot for the entire bonsai world. I am sure the bonsai world will miss such a great man. Prayers for his family.

Thanks for the sad news. We're all heading in that direction. Hopefully, a couple of our trees will live beyond the boundary of our lifetime. I'm sure this is true for Mr. Iwasaki.

A very generous and humble man who will be missed by the bonsai community.

There is a nice very nice article about him and his incredible gardens in International Bonsai 2011/no. 1.

Ferrand has a nice write up in the editors section of the recent Bonsai Focus.
