Recently I went home after a two weeks travel to Japan. Humidity and temperatures went to the sky, but the experiences did too. Seeing Japanese bonsai in the flesh is an experience to learn from when possible. Probably it will be a while before going again, so I was keen to take a good load of photographs to record the visit and keep a stack of files to help the memory.
I was able to shoot at places were normally no one get permission to photograph. This is due to a long and respectfully knowledge and friendship with owners. I will share all these special photographs at www.shohin-europe.com and use the blog here to print smaller histories the next days.
The entrance at Seikou-en in Omiya bonsai village. Tomio Yamada is the owner of Seikou-en, and in another post I will show more of this nursery normally not published.
