The Omiya Bonsai Art Museum

Omiya Bonsai Art Museum is the first publicly bonsai art museum in the world. The purpose of the museum is to educate patrons about the various forms of bonsai.

The Omiya Bonsai Art Museum is where you will learn about the care and cultivation of bonsai. Bonsai is a form traditional planting art that can be traced back to the 9th century. There over 100 bonsai masterpieces and related artifacts at the museum. In the garden there are about 50 bonsai pieces displayed and changes in accordance to the season. The facility first opened in the spring of 2010 to help promote the bonsai culture as overseas interest increased. The trees are living artwork that requires consistent care and application of various techniques.
BR> Nearby the museum is the Omiya Bonsai Village, which dates back to 1925. When the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923 hit many of the bonsai nurseries in Tokyo were damaged. It is later that Omiya was chosen for bonsai lovers to relocate because of the access to land, good soil and clean water. When visiting the area you will have the chance to go around the Omiya Bonsai Village where there are 5 nurseries kept by 5 different artisans. It is free to enter the gardens, but photographs are not allowed in the respective gardens. You can also find bonsai vendors within the vicinity as well as world class bonsai art. It is a quiet village where you can enjoy a stroll through the area and admire the foliage in any season.
