The 92nd Kokufu Bonsai Exhibition is being held in two parts again this year. Here are some more images from the first part. I saw a great number of foreigners this time, many from Italy.
This year the Nippon Bonsai Association is using new white backgrounds for the main room only. They are a bit taller and shiny with a texture. The older tan colored backgrounds are being used in the smaller downstairs room and upstairs in the mezzanine level and also the shohin bonsai room. The main room has many more lights, all LED. The dark blue table cloths are a bit narrower which reveals more of the light tan skirting on top.
That wraps up the report for Part I of this year’s Kokufu Bonsai Exhibition. A report for Part II in a few days.
