A Visit To Taisho-en Bonsai Garden

FUJI

Taisho-en Bonsai Garden is operated by Nobuichi Urushibata and his son Taiga. It is located in Shizuoka, Japan, near Mt. Fuji. Breathtaking views can be seen from streets and also at the train station where I took this photo through a window.

Nobuichi Urushibata is one of the top shohin bonsai artists in Japan who specializes in these diminutive treasurers. His son Taiga apprenticed with Masahiko Kimura and, of course, specializes in carving dead wood and large size bonsai. He is actually one of a small handful of professionals who can delicately wire small size as well as large size bonsai. He is quite skilled, has smarts and also speaks excellent English. A few years ago he was one of the judges and demonstrators for the 2018 US National Bonsai Exhibition. He is a popular demonstrator around the world.

Nobuichi was quick to point to me that that he also works on the large size bonsai and his son also works on shohin size bonsai. This small bonsai garden is immaculate and one could eat off the floor. Each has their own apprentices to teach and train for bonsai.
