    Ripe in distinctness, history and spectacular beauty

    The Omiya Bonsai Art museum is as unique as it is beautiful, and is ripe in history too. The museum is quite small but it houses some stunning bonsai displays. And all of them have a fascinating story and / or rich history. The works are described as living art and after seeing the displays you can really understand this concept. But what is even more fascinating is that a lot of the older bonsai have dead wood too. Their oldest bonsai is 1000 years old. Quite a large part of it is dead, but it can live with the dead parts intact. The mind boggles at this anomaly. Currently (Dec 2018) the famed and popular blue dragon tree, named for its resemblance to a dragon, is in the small area where you can take photos. Most of the museum does not allow photography. The museum has volunteer English guides who will passionately and thoroughly explain many aspects of bonsai.
