green club

Ueno and Nippon Bonsai association in Tokyo, Japan

上野グリーンクラブ & 日本盆栽協会 - The Ueno Green Club is located at the west part of Ueno Park and is home to several Bonsai shops offering trees, tools and pots. Most stands only open during weekends and the club gets crowded during the Spring Bonsai Festival (early February, scheduled part of Kokufu-ten) when over a hundred stands are set up. The area is closed on Wednesdays.

The Nippon Bonsai Association is located just outside the Ueno Green Club precinct and offers information about upcoming Bonsai exhibitions. Joining Nippon Bonsai Association is possible for foreigners. This is rather expensive, but you do receive the monthly magazine and the Kokufu-ten catalog.
