TOPIC: The Omiya Bonsai Museum and bonsai village

The Omiya Bonsai Museum and bonsai village 3 months 1 week ago #36360

Hi folks.
I am back from Japan, where I had the opportunity to buy some nice tools at the Haneshin factory and to visit some bonsai nurseries.
Top place was the Omiya Bonsai Art Museum in Saitama, near Tokyo.
I will post some (maybe 5) comments below with some of the pictures attached, but...
First things first: this is not my first trip to Japan nor my first bonsai show in Japan; but this time some things called my attention:
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 for one week, then back outside, so always the trees inside are different from the previous week.
4-) NO glazed colorful pots. No stumps with some foliage on top.

Below the pictures in a sequence. ALL pictures by myself, besides the one showing the tokonoma, as it is forbidden to take photographs inside the museum.

if you have never killed a tree, you are not doing bonsai

Of course I meant Kaneshin and not Haneshin tools, but... I could not edit it anymore, sorry.

Thank you all, yes it was an amazing experience.
The Kaneshin tool factory was another unforgettable dream come true, and the tools... All handmade, all perfect.

A BLUE pot!
