What to Expect
How would you like to spend a half day of your vacation enjoying the wonders of small nature?
Come to the Omiya Bonsai Art Museum and the Bonsai Village.
Visitors come from in and out of Japan to enjoy the simple pleasures of life.
You'll see 60 to 70 pots of beautiful trees including a "1000-year-old Yezo spruce", a burgeoning "150-year-old Japanese maple" and a flowering "Japanese quince" displayed at traditional Japanese reception rooms ( Tatami matted rooms with a sacred alcove called "Tokonoma") and an open-air Bonsai Garden.
They are exhibited in accordance with a Japanese sense of beauty based on the concept, "quiet simplicity and subdued refinement" or Wabi Sabi.
I'll help you enjoy Bonsai.
After visiting the Bonsai Museum, you can choose one from 3 options:
1) to visit other Bonsai nurseries in Bonsai Village, strolling tasteful paths
2) to visit the famous old Shinto shrine nearby and walk through an approach to the shrine flanked with 700 trees including Keyaki (Japanese zelkova) to JR Omiya station
3) to stop by a nice cafe near Bonsai Village
