Omiya Bonsai

Following the Great Kanto Earthquake in 1923, Tokyo bonsai artists moved in search of fertile, spacious land, fresh air and clean water, and this was the origin of Omiya’s Bonsai Village. Now, even abroad, bonsai are highly valued and the word “bonsai” is part of our global vocabulary, with many bonsai artists around the world. Omiya’s Bonsai village includes the Omiya Bonsai Art Museum, which promotes bonsai culture and serves as a hub for tourism.
Bonsai Village also boasts unique gardens of “Omiya Bonsai” nurtured through traditional techniques passed down from the Edo period.
