Two of the suiseki were recently displayed in the Nippon Suiseki Exhibition held in Tokyo, Japan during the famous Kokufu Bonsai Exhibition. It is interesting that approximately one half of the suiseki were displayed in water basins and the others in wooden daiza.

The greenhouse was cleaned and power washed in preparation for the Suiseki Exhibit. Blue indoor/outdoor carpets were used as tablecloths and white shoji screens were used for backgrounds. All the suiseki were presented in a ceramic or bronze water basin as well as custom made daiza. In order to bring life and seasonal color to the exhibit, several accessory plants were included as well as a few bonsai to show how suiseki can be displayed and appreciated with bonsai.
