Description - What to expectBonsai is known as a work of “living art” in Japan, and it has been prominent in Japanese culture since long ago. Unlike planting trees in a field, Bonsai trees are delicately cultivated on a tray or bowl where the grower has more control of the size and amount of roots that grow and thus are able to confine the root systems and create miniature trees.
Your tour starts at the Bonsai Museum where you will meet your professional bonsai specialist and you are going to have a hands-on experience learning various techniques for shaping and pruning bonsai trees. Your Bonsai instructor will answer any questions you may have and let you know all about this ancient Japanese art.
