The 35th anniversary bonsai exhibition of Kubote engei (part 1)

Kubote engei(nursery) is situated in Buzen city of Fukuoka prefecture, they had held their 35th anniversary bonsai exhibition on 25th to 27th October. Most of trees were exhibited at Kokufu-ten in the past and some are even registered as Kityo-bonsai(precious bonsai...kind of best of best ) by Japan Bonsai Association.

The owner of the nursery, Mr.Oza had gathered these treasure trees from here and there. I could imagine his effort and hardness.
At the venue, I asked a staff with hesitating if I could take photos because as you know many big shows in Japan are forbidden to take them. But he easily answered "Certainly yes". That is a good point of local exhibitions. All photos I took are Kokufu trees. Here we go.

Amazing, thanks again for sharing. The Pine at the end is my favourite. I love the maples but it's hard to beat a rugged Pine to convey age and tell a story of a hard life.

I await with eagerness Part 2 :-)

That Pine's owner, Mr. Ishimatsu lives near our house and he will exhibit his another great tree for our local show on next weekend...sounds like you can't take your eyes off my blog , can you ? ;-)
