The Great Wave off Kanagawa
The Great Wave off Kanagawa is a woodblock print depicting a wave in front of Mount Fuji, by the Japanese artist Hokusai. This image is one of the most famous prints of Japan, and we were amazed by a Bonsai tree that looks remarkably similar.
Portland Bonsai village
The most famous and popular Bonsai destination in Japan is, without doubt, the Omiya Bonsai village. The village is actually a suburb of Tokyo, where five well known nurseries are located close to each other.

Truth is, this tree really needs no introduction, especially not from the likes of someone such as myself.
Miniature Bonsai Gardens
Emre Ozberk had a fascination for Bonsai trees. But at some point, he started to focus not on the tree, but on the empty space around it. The beginning of a great new hobby, creating miniature gardens around Bonsai trees.

Although Bonsai became incredibly popular in the West, it never reached the status as “fine art” like it does in countries like Japan. We’re very interested to hear what Ryan Neil has to say about this, as he is currently working on creating an event that might change our perception of Bonsai. Finally.
Vietnamese miniature Bonsai landscape
We have seen realistic miniature landscapes before, but this particular one really stands out. It consists of a traditional Vietnamese farmhouse, two small Bonsai trees and outer walls.
Bonsai is something that fascinates people, and this fascination has led to several jokes and hoaxes on the internet. The Bonsai kitten (little kitten held for years in small glass jars) is probably the #1 story in this category, it was even investigated by the FBI, and luckily turned out to be fake!
Mini and Mame Bonsai
Bonsai are known for their small size. But Mame Bonsai (up to 4" or 10cm) take the quest for miniaturization one step further. Mame and pottery artist Haruyosi (Japan) shares with us several of his miniature works of wonder.
