My visit last year, Shinpukuji Bonsai Museum Temple, it was my first time seeing the trees in the sunlight. The greens were brighter and darker than I had seen before logs. the tree health was evident. Here are some of the pines and junipers on the screen the day of my visit.

This was also the first time he had seen the deciduous trees on the sheet. I have previously posted shots of some of these trees in winter – if you’re curious, see “Shinpukuji Temple bonsai museum” since last year. Among my favorites is the carpe below.
