Tokonoma and Tsukubai

The summer holidays are used to build up the new bonsai garden, after we moved here half a year ago. At the moment I am building an outdoor Tokonoma for bonsai displaying. Not only for the cause of visitors but also for my own sake. It heightens the aesthetic value and appreciation of a bonsai when displayed in a Tokonoma or another form of display area.

Also a Tsukubai is arranged, to add a water feature to the garden. The sound of water is calming and gives a peaceful atmosphere, so any garden should have water in one or another form I think. Here are some progression and under construction pictures. The final images will be posted when finished a little later this summer.

  1. Hi Morton, Thank you for your posts. I enjoy them. The reason for writing to you is that I found it interesting How the Tsukubai was constructed. Many thanks, Heidi Wellnitz Ft. Lauderdale, Florida
