The Nagoya Castle Bonsai Show

Updated: Oct 8, 2020

On October 15-17 is the annual Nagoya Castle Bonsai Show.  This show is hosted by the  Aichi branch and Nagoya branch of the Japan Bonsai Association and it’s members.  The membership is a mixture of bonsai professionals and enthusiast, though the enthusiast are associated with a professional.  The show is an outdoor show but the trees are placed in a overhang.  This show is not a competition and is mainly directed towards the visitors of the castle.  The show is a more relaxed event so everybody was in good spirits and the trees themselves didn’t go through rigorous show preparations.  We took about 10 trees belonging to various customers and Mr. Tanaka to the setup on Friday afternoon and I was able to take some pictures of the many trees there and the castle it self.  In this post I will talk a bit about the castle and the numerous trees at the show.  There is almost 40 pictures so sit back, relax and enjoy the show!
