Trees rotate regularly in and out of the Shinpukuji Bonsai Museum. When not on the screen, these trees – and countless trees project – reside in the backyard of Mr. Oomura. At the top of the mountain on which stands the temple Shinpukuji, the garden offers views of the mountains Aichi Prefecture and large bonsai.

The holes in the maple above were created by beetles that gnaw their way through the tree during the summer months. Trees often fall through the branches and gradually work their way towards the base of the trunk. Then, overnight, holes size of a pencil appear out of nowhere from which the adult beetles emerge.

A more charming garden Mr. Oomura aspect is the large number of seedlings, cuttings and other young trees that fill the garden. He is particularly fond of khaki princess. Some had long fruit, cut others -. Some had red fruit, other fruit was orange or yellow

If circumstances permit, I think I would have great pleasure in working on these trees throughout the year. Thanks to the fun mix of trees and the natural environment, which is one of my favorite places to visit bonsai gardens.
