Following the very successful UKBA bonsai display at the Hyper Japan Festival in London last year, contact was made with representatives of the Japanese Embassy in London. Through them a link to a bonsai master in Japan was arranged. It is hoped to have a pre recorded link running during the show in a side room of the centre between the times of 1pm – 3pm. We had hoped that this would be live to Japan but various things have prevented this. This will feature Mr Ryuichi Kitadani, a 4th Generation Bonsai Garden owner in Japan, He also has many videos on Youtube. The room being used will be signed and is located near the centre main reception desk. There is no charge and included in the show entry, just remember the raffle takes place about 2pm.
