A rare view on (what most likely is) Omiya Bonsai village. How things have changed!
Peter Chan received this photo from a lady who was in Tokyo in 1947 after the Second World War. When this picture was taken, she would have been in her mid thirties. She may have worked with the US or Allied Forces as a nurse. #bonsai

Learn to grow and care for Bonsai trees and get inspired by stunning images!
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! :)
