Hi folks. I am back from Japan, where I had the opportunity to buy some nice tools at the Kaneshin factory and to visit some bonsai nurseries. Top place was the Omiya Bonsai Art Museum in Saitama, near Tokyo. I will post some pictures below with some of the trees, but... First things first: as this is not my first trip to Japan nor my first bonsai show over there, this time I have paid more attention to the details, so... 1-) ALL trees (not only the ones inside, on exhibition) had moss on them. 2-) ALL trees had tea bags with Biogold on their soil. 3-) Trees on exhibition (pictures forbidden unfortunately...) stay inside the Museum for one week, then back outside; so the trees inside are always different from the previous week. 4-) NO glazed colorful pots. 5-) No stumps with some foliage on top. Below the pictures in a sequence. All pictures are by myself, only exception is the second one showing the tokonoma, as it is forbidden to take photographs inside the museum and I grabbed it from their website. .View from the balcony . Tokonoma inside the museum (the best trees are on exhibition, but... NO pictures allowed) . . . . .Yours truly... This tree is HUGE. . . . . Any comments welcome. There are many bonsai nurseries around, that's why the region is called "Omiya Bonsai Village"
