In March 2007 I Traveled to Japan and Studied bonsai in Shizuoka, at Taisho-en Nursery, run by Mr. Nobuichi Urushibata.
After my study had ended, I traveled further around Japan visiting various bonsai nurseries. This blog was a way to share my photos.
Since returning to my home in Australia, Japan has never been far from my mind. It has taken almost 2 years, but i am finally going back to continue my studies and visit as many nurseries as i can. Hopefully i will be able to update this site regularly with photos and my experiences.
Ihave started a new blog that will deal with my work and experiences in bonsai which is located HERE (Nichigo Bonsai). Hopefully i will be able to use it as a place to update what is happening in my garden from time to time.
For anyone looking to tour nurseries, buy and import trees/ tools and visit exhibitions I cannot reccomend Mr. Yoshihiro Nakamizu enough. He also can provide translation services in several languages
Contact him via this website.
