One of the advantages of visiting bonsai nurseries in Japan – apart from seeing so many big trees – it is to get a better sense of the person who keeps the nursery. Do you like conifers or deciduous trees, a large or small number of varieties, bonsai trees in developing or highly refined? How long they remain in their care trees can reveal whether they enjoy long-term projects or high turnover rates in the garden.

When visiting the garden Chiharu Imai in Kanagawa Prefecture, it became immediately clear that Imai enjoys develop all kinds of material quality bonsai. The trees in your garden ranged from barely developed to beautifully refined. For these last posts of my recent visit to Japan, I will present some junipers, pines and deciduous bonsai garden Imai more or less in descending order based on relative development stages. First, the junipers. And what – what trees fun it is
