Kimura’s Garden is located in Saitama Prefecture. It contains some of the most amazing trees i have ever been lucky enough to lie eyes upon. Visiting here was a life dream come true. Enjoy.

    Congratulations, only few of us have the chance to visit Kimura sensei like Taisho En students and have this kind treatment.

    Best regards

    Must i contact him and have a rendez-vous?
    Have you got an adress or email adress?
    Thank you…

    Please contact Mr. Yoshihiro Nakamizu Via the website. Kimura’s garden can only be visited by invitation or if accompanied by a guide such as Mr. Nakamizu.

  7. JF says:

    Thank you very much for answering

    That’s why it’s so hard to find his adress…
    I’ ve contacted Mr Nakamizu, the visit is quite expensive 250 euros (full day two well known nurserys including Kimura’s to visit and Omiya village, lunch and they pick you at your hotel in Tokyo) i hesitate…

    Did you do a similar trip?

  8. bonsaijapan says:

    That is the trip i did. It does seem expensive until you look at what you get for the money. The lunch was of very high quality in a very nice japanese resturant. Mr. Nakamizu drives you everywhere and translates as well as introducing you to owners and giving you information about the nurseries. We met the owners of every nursery we visited and talked and had tea with each. He can also arrange exporting of trees if you are interested in buying trees. The day is a long one and the road tolls alone and lunch are very expensive.

    For me tho i totally forgot about the money i had spent the minute i arrived in Kimuras garden. It was a dream come true. I was smiling for weeks afterwards. Basically if you do not know someone in the bonsai buisness in japan it is near impossible to visit let alone find Kimuras garden. Even after being driven there i doubt i could have found it even with the address. It is hidden down a lane in a suburb with no other nurseries around around 45 minutes drive from Omiya.

    While i was there i was still a university student so i did not have alot of money. After the tour i at no point regretted it.
