As I am living in a walk distance from Bonsai Village, I can guide you very effectively. Bonsai Village is located In Saitama City. It takes about one hour from the center of Tokyo by rail.
At present day, there are five nurseries of Bonsai and The Omiya Bonsai Art Museum. Each of the nurseries has their own characteristics you may enjoy. Some have lady-favorite Bonsai, and some has large size Bonsai. You may buy vessels and tools specialized in Bonsai nursing. You could even buy Bonsai itself( you need some complicated procedures to export them). Bonsai village is within only 15 minute by foot. You can enjoy walking in quiet town(village) by only one hour trip from the downtown of Tokyo.
The museum has about 150 Bonsai. Some of them are 1000-2000 years old and you can also observe the staff caring them at a short distance. The museum also has three typical TOKONOMA (caves) with best suited Bonsai. There are English brochures which is very simple and volunteer guides with little foreign language efficiency.
transportation fee from Omiya station to Omiya-kouen station(the second station from Omiya) for you, entrance fee of the Museum(300-en/each),
on Thursday the museum is closed

El tour estuvo excelente y la puntialidad del guia ni se diga. El your estuvo bastante completo y ademas conocía perfectamente el sistema de transporte y las rutas a seguir. No tuvimos ningun retraso y pudimos ver todas las actividades. Recomiendo definitvamente tomar el tour con YO.
We were really lucky to have contacted Yo at TripleLights. That was our first trip to Japan. Yo helped us immensely to custom make our itinerary, and he booked tickets and events for us. Everything was planned to the second. Yo was very flexible when we decided to make some changes on the go, and he arranged two more activities for us. We wanted to watch the sumo training but all of a sudden the stable canceled it. Yo found a way for us to watch it in a different stable the following day. It was a true pleasure to be guided by Yo. We highly recommend him for your trip in Japan. Thank you very, very much, Yo!
Thank you for your kind comment. It was my pleasure to attend very happy family like your family. You are very intelligent about Japanese culture and like to attend many activities. You love your daughter so much. To attend your family was so rewarding that I never had. Please come again to Japan.
What a gentleman! Yo was great filling in the gaps of things we missed on our own. He has a lot of knowledge about Tokyo and the history of Japan and a very pleasing manner. He lived in Delaware for a bit and has a great command of the English language. My family had a great time with him.
Thank you for your comment. I wish you and your families continue a nice and memorable trip in Japan.
With our private tour guide Mr. Yo Ogawa, he is very organized and well knowledgeable, he is a very fit gentleman, thank you Mr. Yo Ogawa you are awesome.
Thank you for your message. I am following you and your families through the *******. I wish you continue a nice trip in Europe.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Yo. We can't even imagine how we would have initially managed the multiple rail systems within the Japan Rail network without him. The fact he picked us up from our hotel was appreciated. We would recommend his services and thank Triple Lights.
Thank you for your kind comment. I also enjoyed being with your wife and you.
