Imperial Bonsai

About Imperial Bonsai

皇居の盆栽について

There is a site for bonsai works called Omichi Teien Garden at the Imperial
Palace.
About 600 bonsai pieces of some 90 species of plants are cultivated there.
Among them are many hundreds-of-year-old trees.
Bonsai at the Imperial Palace is characterized by three major features --
many large bonsai works, nature-oriented bonsai formations that hold down
artificial techniques as much as possible, and a number of antique trees
aged more than 100.
These are believed to have added overwhelming elegance to bonsai works at
the palace that are different from modern bonsai works.
Many bonsai lovers long to see bonsai pieces at the palace.
