Actually, the art was developed in China and Japan imported the idea from there. They have changed it somewhat to produce the Japanese formalism we see today. Yes, it is different from Chinese.

There are bonsai places like this all over China.

If you come through Hong Kong, visit Chi Lin Nunnery in Kowloon.

it's been a while since we arrived here. Going home for the holidays is n't possible due to Covid regulations, so I'm walking around looking for bonsai.
Most of them are large, very large but now and then you can see some nice trees
