Nihon de Hajimete: Part 2, Taishoen and Daijuen

Japanese Bonsai Pots Blog

Taishoen
The next Leg of the trip saw us visiting Urushibata San and Taishoen. There are a mad amount of awesome shohin, Chuhin, and Omono bonsai at Taishoen, and it’s definitely a nursery not to be missed!

Daijuen
Next up, we met up with Mr. Ken Fujiwara, who prepared Matt’s Kaede thr appeared in Kokufu earlier this year. Mr. Fujiwara apprenticed at Daijuen, and was kind enough to take us on a tour of Daijuen, Shinpukuji Temple, and Aichien.
Daijuen had a large number of world class large pines, in addition to some impressive Tosho and maples.
