I hope you all had the chance to enjoy Kimura's exclusive interview? His teachings about Bonsai made quite an impact on social media and broke records, it was watched nearly 100.000 minutes!
We also interviewed four of his students: http://www.bonsaiempire.com/blog/kimura-interview

Some interesting videos really, but to call these apprentices "disciples"... I don't know.

In this unique interview with master. Kimura, conducted in his garden near Tokyo, we ask about his early years and how he build up his business. Four of his old apprentices will give a demonstration at the European Bonsai San Show, October 15th and 16th 2016, so mr. Kimura also talks about his students and briefly introduces them to the audience. The movie ends with a tour through his wonderful Bonsai garden. #bonsai

The long awaited exclusive interview with Masahiko Kimura is here, available in six languages…

This video was made possible by an amicable cooperation between the European-Bonsai-San-Show and Bonsai Empire. In this unique and exclusive interview, conducted in his garden near Tokyo, we ask about his early years as apprentice, the way he educates his students and how he successfully build his business. #bonsai

Introduction
The word ‘Bon-sai’ is Japanese and it means ‘planted in a container’. As a Japanese art form it is deeply rooted in Zen Buddhism and exists for well over a thousand years. The ultimate goal of growing a bonsai tree is to create a miniaturized but realistic depiction of nature, using techniques such as pruning and wiring.

Although the word ‘Bon-sai’ is Japanese, the art it describes originated in the Chinese empire.  By the year 700 AD the Chinese had started the art of ‘pun-sai’ using special techniques to grow dwarf trees in containers.  Originally only the elite of the society practiced pun-tsai with native-collected specimens and the trees where spread throughout China as luxurious gifts. During the Kamakura period, the period in which Japan adopted most of China’s cultural trademarks, the art of growing trees in containers was introduced into Japan.


On this page we will regularly post new galleries, news and more. We also keep a top 10 of the greatest bonsai trees that we know of; check it out! :)
