What to Expect
You'll enrich your knowledge about traditional Japanese culture,Bonsai. And their elegant figures and fragrance refresh yourself.
This tour is offered just four days in this year.
First come, first served!
Bonsai had been cherished by top figures in the worlds of politics, business and academy such as Shogun, prime ministers and captains of industry.
I think that people with a heavy responsibility might have been soothed and inspired by viewing Bonsai as a condensed natural landscape.
Why do't you refresh yourself like them.
At the Omiya Bonsai Art Museum, let me tell you about how to view Bonsai, how to take care of Bonsai and how to display Bonsai at Japanese rooms which divided into three types by the level of formality using hanging scrolls,amazing Bonsai pots and Bonsai tables or stands.
You can appreciate about 60 pots of Bonsai masterpieces such as a 1000- year- old Bonsai, a forest like group planting Bonsai and enjoy them creating your own Bonsai world using your imagination.
(On Feb. 10 and 12, You can also see the most important Bonsai, the pinnacle of Bonsai named "Higurashi" at the OMB museum.)
In addition you can enjoy many blossoms with refreshing fragrance now.
After visiting Omiya Bonsai Art Museum, you have two choices.
