A Visit To Taisho-en Bonsai Garden

Valavanis Bonsai Blog


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.
