The next Leg of the trip saw us visiting Urushibata San and Taishoen. There are a mad amount of awesome shohin, Chuhin, and Omono bonsai at Taishoen, and it’s definitely a nursery not to be missed!
Twisty shohin Shinpaku.
Next up, we met up with Mr. Ken Fujiwara, who prepared Matt’s Kaede thr appeared in Kokufu earlier this year. Mr. Fujiwara apprenticed at Daijuen, and was kind enough to take us on a tour of Daijuen, Shinpukuji Temple, and Aichien.
Daijuen had a large number of world class large pines, in addition to some impressive Tosho and maples.
Up next: Fujiwara San shows us around to Shinpukuji Temple and Aichien.
