Masahiko Kimura is one of the world’s most renowned Bonsai masters. In this unique and exclusive interview, conducted in his garden near Tokyo, we ask about his early years as apprentice, the way he educates his students and how he successfully build his business.

Four of his apprentices will give a demonstration at the European Bonsai San Show, October 15th and 16th 2016, so mr. Kimura also talks about his students and briefly introduces them to the audience. The video ends with a tour through his wonderful Bonsai garden.

We would like to express our deepest gratitude to Master Masahiko Kimura to welcome us in his home and his magical world of Bonsai. We also thank the Nippon Bonsai Association for their support and specifically to Makiko Kobayashi, and of course Marco Invernizzi. You can also check our online course with mr. Kimura: the Masahiko Kimura Bonsai Masterclass.
