Overview

Loosely clustered into the "bonsai village," 15 bonsai nurseries lie within walking distance of one another in Omiya, each displaying its wares in an formal, open-air Japanese garden. In May, the village puts on a Bonsai festival, and all the nurseries display their finest creations against a backdrop of spring flowers.

I loved this beautiful neighborhood and all of the bonsai to explore. We could see some traditional Japanese homes and even learned a bit about the art of bonsai. A wonderful afternoon!

The day we visited was very quiet and sunny. The village doesn't seem to be advertised at all, especially to tourists generally. We found out about it through a friend. It is a little outside Tokyo city but easily accessed by Shinkansen in half an...More

The Omiya Bonsai Museum at Saitama is probably the greatest collection of Bonsai available for public viewing. The Audio commentary is simply worded and describes each plant in an easy to appreciate manner, even for the uninitiated. A must see in any visit to japan.

We took the train from Akinhabara station to Toro Station in Omiya, about a 45 minutes ride. Omiya is the Bonsai Village of Japan and gives a feeling of a village rather than a town. After a 10 minute walk we arrived at the "Bonsai...More
