I visited "the 65th Bonsai Exhibition of Japanese Plum Trees" at Keiunkan, Nagahama City in Shiga Prefecture. It's a traditional Bonsai exhibition which is the best one in Japan for its history and scale.
First of all, I was amazed by how they overturned the fixed image of Bonsai. There were large trees lined up which could almost reach the ceiling. There was also a tree that was extremely old. I thought it must be old enough not to bloom, but it did have blossoms. I never get bored of looking at.
I saw small Bonsai pots on a tiered stand. I thought that it would be nice to have and cute to look at the small ones like those at home.
I interviewed a staff from Association of Nagahama sightseeing about the history of "Bonsai Exhibition of Japanese Plum Trees" and the high light of Bonsai of Japanese Plum Trees. Next time, I will release the main part which includes the interview.
During this exhibition, "The 4th Photography Contest of Nagahama Bonsai Exhibition of Japanese Plum " and other various events are also held.
