Le bonsaï au Japon

Web bonsai review #12 – december 2012

The first snow fell and came to cover the bonsai on the shelves. Here is the starting point of this twelfth edition of our web bonsai review. We are particularly fortunate because many pictures of the Taikan-ten circulating at the moment, I also found some great pictures of bonsai taken this autumn and also a good plan to travel cheaper in Japan.

Antique bonsaï pots :

If you enjoy exceptional bonsai pots, old and covered with patina I suggest you follow Ayumu Fukano. I put some pictures of pots posted recently.

Nippon Bonsai Taikan-ten is the second most important exhibition of bonsai in Japan after the famous kokufu-ten. It takes place every year in late November in Kyoto Miyako mess, recognizable by its architecture building made of huge red tubes on the outside. This is the Nippon Bonsai Association, particularly the section of Kyoto, which organizes the event.

This is a major exhibition in several aspects, firstly the quality of presentations and the number of trees, and then the number of visitors who go there (over 10,000 annually). You notice that the beige color walls allow perfectly enjoy the trees, moreover they are perfect for making photographs.

There is very little information on this exhibition which is not one in the conventional sense. Rather it is a set in a tokonoma exposure throughout the year at Seiji Morimae garden. You can enjoy original trees, full of delicacy and suiseki.

Seiji Morimae presentation on internationalbonsai.com :

Seiji Morimae is a fifth generation bonsai artist who traces his family’s horticultural business for over 500 years. His many years of bonsai, suiseki and display study combined with his fine taste, have provided him with the necessary background to create S-Cube a business consisting of a large bonsai garden and two retail stores in Tokyo, Japan.

Travel cheaper to Japan :

A trip to Japan can be expensive, but there are tips not to be missed if you want to lower the bill and get more pleasure out of place. I found a very good plan for accommodation: sakura house.

They offer a rental of hotel rooms at a fair price even in Tokyo. But the most interesting is the possibility to rent an apartment for 1-4 people monthly. You will be able to rent an apartment in Tokyo, Saitama, but also (for amateur bonsai), and Yokohama … Prices range from € 700 to just over € 1000, as saying that it is unbeatable if wants to have to spend a month in Japan!

For example there are three apartments less than 900 € / month for two to Saitama. A unique opportunity to visit the nurseries bonsai thoroughly, including the master Kawabe.

What the fuck :
