Kunio Kobayashi's Bonsai Museum, Japan

3 years 10 months ago #52685 by LW
On 26th November our bonsai group had the pleasure of visiting Kunio Kobayashi's Shunka-en Bonsai Museum which is located in the Edogawa district of Tokyo.

Shunka-en is one of the most well known bonsai museums in the world and has some of Japan’s finest antique bonsai containers.

Mr Kobayashi would be, in my opinion, the best bonsai display setups in Japan. Although it is a museum, it is also a nursery. Unfortunately, Mr Kobayashi was not in attendance that day as he was demonstrating in Tokyo.

The museum has a beautiful display of antique pots from China and Japan, and also has a number of tokonoma rooms all set up with trees and scrolls, etc.

The displays are changed every few days. Outside there is a beautiful koi pond with a stream running into it.

The museum has undergone some major changes since we were there in February 2015.

No matter how many times you visit these nurseries in Japan, there is always something different about them when you revisit them.

I have selected a number of photos of my favourite trees at the museum.

I hope you enjoy them.

This will be my last posting from here in Japan as we are heading home tomorrow, the 7th December - I just hope Qantas is in a good mood when we check in, as the bags are a lot heavier going back home.

Once home, I will do some more posts about other nurseries we visited.

Finally, thank you for all your comments.

Lance

Thanks very much for the huge numbers of photos you've over the past few weeks, well done and quite inspiring. I hope to get across to Japan for the World Conference next year and have made a note of the places you have visited particularly the nurseries.

Regards
