This year we had a bespoke video presentation at our winter show, a collaboration between the UK Bonsai Association, the Japanese Embassy and Mr Ryuichi Kitadani.

Mr Ryuichi Kitadani, a 4th generation bonsai artisan based in Japan pre-recorded a 34-minute video centred on questions provided by UK Bonsai Association members. This was an opportunity for UK enthusiasts to break the language barrier and ascertain answers we may culturally or technically misinterpret. Enjoy.

Thank you Mr Ryuichi Kitadani. You will find his YouTube channel here.

The Japanese embassy also wants to share further information regarding the bonsai in this region and how to visit:
