Bonsai is a miniature tree art originally started in ancient China.
About 10th century, it was brought to Japan and developed into forms.
The word “Bonsai” is Japanese and it means “tree-in- a-pot.”
The art of bonsai is profound.
It is like creating a three dimensional art piece with the power of the nature.
Unlike house plants, bonsai is more expressive and needs effort to make a beautiful piece.
Because trees are alive, they constantly change their looks.
It is interesting to have seasonally changing trees as bonsai ; for example, maples turn into red in autumn, cherries and Japanese apricots blossom in spring.
These three trees are popular bonsai trees.
This is JAPAN Style!
