Kinsahi Bonsai Nursery's

2 years 9 months ago #56712 by JC
Hi There

One of our forum members LW is in Japan and asked me to post these up for him.

Just a small selection of photos that I took whilst walking around the village. It was bitterly cold with light snow falling during the day. Just near the Kinsahi train station is a very nice bakery with great coffee, so we did make use of the warmth. It’s a must if you visit the area.



The following text is from Bonsai Empire.
Less famous, but many times larger than and perhaps almost as beautiful as Omiya bonsai village, Kinashi is a very impressive sight and surely worth some time in your travel itinerary.
The area has a history of growing Bonsai for over 250 years and it has an 80% share in the domestic market of pine trees. About a hundred nurseries are located here, of which about a dozen can be considered high-end (training high quality trees). Many large fields of young nursery plants are grown in the area too, making the entire neighborhood feel like heaven on earth.
You won’t find many deciduous trees here, as most nurseries grow solely pine trees. There are 13 nurseries near the Kinashi train station are the ones I liked most or were simply conveniently located; note that there are many other impressive gardens I did not describe. Taking pictures at the nurseries is generally no problem. There is an exchange market every 5th, 15th and 25th of every month and the main market on the 15th of March and November is worth visiting.
The annual Bonsai festival is held in late October at Ueki Bonsai center. This is at the same time as the Takamatsu Bonsai Convention, which comes highly recommended, as masterpiece Bonsai trees are on display at the two main tourist sights of Takamatsu (Tamamo park and Ritsurin).

Hi Mark

I'm amazed at the shot of trunks only looks like a Pine Cemetery, but they obviously must bud back ?

Problem solved.

Regarding this photo, I also wondered why they had been cut back. So, today I asked some growers from the Kinashi area whilst at the Kokufu-Ten and they said that the pines had been killed off. There could be a number of reasons why, e.g. no market for the trees, or the owner no longer growing bonsai trees, etc.
The reason why the branches are cut off is to let the tree die off, which makes it easier to remove the stumps from the ground, and then replant something else.
