bonsai general - 24 views
Shinpukuji The temple complex has a small bonsai museum showing a collection of rotation of the shafts belonging to Mr. Oomura. My first visits were in the winter garden. On these occasions the indoor viewing area filled with blooming UME. Last fall, the room included a mix of varieties and a selection of fun family bonsai chrysanthemums.
