bonsai tree care

On my last day in Japan last February, I had the opportunity to visit two bonsai nurseries in Kanagawa Prefecture. The first stop was Kentaro Shiino of. He had known Shiino, a graduate of Daiju-in, several years earlier in Gomankoku (back row from left). As it is the case with all students Daiju-in, Shiino had a lot of opportunities to work with bonsai pine. This is evident from the numerous large and well developed pine trees in his garden.

Many of the trees were kept inside to protect them from the cold, which includes a series of bonsai they were in Kokufu this year.
