2024 98th Kokufu Bonsai Exhibition- Half 2 – Valavanis Bonsai Weblog

The 2024 98th Kokufu Bonsai Exhibition is being held in two elements this yr (Half 1 February 9-12, 2024 and Half 2 February 14-17, 2024.) Once more, (like most years) the exhibition was held within the Tokyo Metropolitan Artwork Museum in Ueno Park, Tokyo, Japan.

Every bonsai in Half 2 of the exhibition was excellent. I personally thought Half 2 was higher than the sooner Half 1.  I acknowledged many well-known masterpieces and this half did have a number of Ezo spruce. Just a few uncommon species have been included which I loved learning: Contorted Boston ivy, Forsythia,  Pemphis , Amalenchier, Creeping fig and Gardenia. Though the shohin bonsai have been gorgeous, their show appeared inferior to these in Half 1. There have been to shohin bonsai compositions that had two painted containers, one above the opposite. Realizing everybody has totally different tastes, most of the finer factors of bonsai go on by and are usually not apparent. The provenience of the tree, previous house owners and rarity of the species is mixed together with your degree of understanding of this artwork kind.

There have been 12 bonsai displayed by house owners from international international locations: Germany, Sir Lanka, Italy, Spain, China and the USA. In fact, these have been Japanese skilled bonsai and I doubt if the house owners ever watered.
