Seiji Morimae, proprietor of S-Cube Bonsai in Japan, runs a bonsai organization called Genko Kai. Coincident with this year’s Taikan-ten, the Genko Kai held an exhibit at the Houshun-in temple, one of 22 sub-temples in the Daitoku-ji complex (see photos of Daitoku-ji gardens).
The Genko Kai displayed their bonsai in formal displays known as tokonoma – designated viewing alcoves – that featured trees and suiseki with scrolls and accent pieces. The trees were beautiful. Here are some of the highlights.
Multi-trunk white pine
Formal upright white pine
Multi-trunk trident maple
Semi-cascade white pine
Pomegranate – note unusual pot
