About Bonsai

Unfolding Life within Limited Space

Once seeded, trees rooted in the earth watch the months and years go by without ever moving from their place. If the trees could speak, unmoving and stoic amidst the storms, avalanches, and winds, what stories would they tell us about life?

Without a craftsman's intervention, the branches of a bonsai tree will continue to grow, as if it's trying to return to its wild state. The craftsman creates space and beauty by following the lines that occur naturally and bringing out their best shape.

Experience the joy of rediscovering your sensibilities through bonsai with Kobayashi Kunio. He is a 4-time recipient of the Prime Minister's Prize and and international lecturer in an effort to nurture the craft of bonsai worldwide.
