Ritta and Mark have visited the Noelanders Trophy exhibition in Belgium many times, but they have only exhibited there twice, this year and last.
As many of you will know, Ritta and I love Japan, and we have become regular visitors. This enables us to indulge our love of the country and its culture, as well as our passion for bonsai and nishikigoi. In November 2013 we were fortunate to be able exhibit a bonsai that we own in the 33rd Taikan-ten bonsai exhibition in Kyoto. Taikan-ten is the most famous exhibition in western Japan, and in our view is only surpassed by Kokufu.
