Bonsai from the Hosokawa School
There are seven special entries, 32 alcove displays and a guest entry of a bonseki from the Hosokawa School. Members displayed 89 suiseki in the general entries. The foreign entries included suiseki from: Philippines, Italy, Denmark, Germany, Vietnam, Australia, China and the United States. There were 21 suiseki in this category. Starting this year, the organization will be having a special exhibit featuring 22 suiseki from famous rivers which ha produced excellent suiseki. In total, there were 171 suiseki and one bonseki in this exhibition.
As in the past the Nippon Suiseki Association published a full color commemorative album featuring all displayed suiseki. Photographs were allowed this year.
It was wonderful to see so many beautiful suiseki from throughout Japan displayed next to bonsai from so many foreign countries. Each stone was unique and presented different views to each person who appreciated their beauty, value and history.
