The Goman Goku bonsai show is hosted by Daijuen bonsai nursery at a performance theater in Okazaki Japan. 2013 marks the events 23rd year. It’s a small show, however the quality of trees is quite high in comparison to many regional bonsai shows of this size.
Daijuen and Aichien work very closely, so the Aichien crew (myself included) was on staff from set-up to take-down. Not only that, but we all looked sharp in our bonsai show suits.
In this article we’ll take a photo tour of the show in it’s entirety. There was no time for photos during the set up, so everything here is from the show itself. It’s difficult for me to give proper credit/owner name for these trees so I tried my best to include the name plate in the photos if possible. Maybe as I learn to read more Japanese I will be able to translate in the future.
Here we go!
From here we’ll take a look at each of the featured displays. Then a few other shots from the event.
And two more large displays.
So that’s that! The 23 annual Goman-Goku Bonsai show in full color, with a little commentary too! Hopefully you enjoyed it. I sure did! Comments and questions can reach me via the contact page on this site.
Thanks for reading and sticking with me through this great bonsai journey. More soon!
until next time…
