Bonsai Shohin Japan was one of the many traders at this year’s Noelanders Trophy. As their name suggests, the nursery specializes in small bonsai imported from Japan.
The nursery is run by the very friendly Guillaume and Alex.
Guillaume and Alex
I was impressed by their material. They work closely with a variety of nurseries and professionals in Japan, including Hiroyuki Tanibata, Koji Hiramatsu, Toyoda Fukuju-en, and Ayumu Fukano of Yorozu-en.
Bonsai Shohin Japan’s stall reminded me of some stalls I’d seen at shows in Japan.
Black pine – nice work
Seeing their trees made me want to visit their nursery. Next time I’m in France I’ll have to stop by!
