I have been in the lucky position to visit Japan a number of times previously. In the new year, I managed to spend another couple of weeks in Japan.
I took advantage of the fantastic cultural aspects of the country. Including the great food, perhaps too much food to be honest.
I also visited two high profile Bonsai shows in Japan that take place annually in January.
The first show I visited took place in Kyoto, the Gafuten Show. It is said to be the best Shohin Bonsai show that there is. The show had tree and pot displays. There also was a sales area where you could purchase just about everything to do with Bonsai. I took a number of photos during my visit so I thought I would share a few with you.
I also visited the Meifuten show in Nagoya.
Again lots of trees of the highest quality on display together with Bonsai pots and other art forms. There was also a great sales area where again you could buy anything to do with Bonsai.
A few photos for you to have a look at.
I hope you enjoy the photos and if you have the opportunity I really recommend you visit and see for yourselves
