Here are some Japanese Black Pines from Kokufu 2010's vendor area. The rest of my Green Club photos are at http://cid-5c2bbe8223ddbf8d.skydrive.live.com/browse.aspx/Kokufu%20Vendors%202010

Here's an interesting one. Just looking at a photo of the front, you would never know it was actually turtle-shaped.

Oh yes! Very nice to see some trees at this level of development. Exquisite. Extraordinary. Especially no. 5. "Naturalistic" be damned! These trees make that "style" seem just an excuse for inadequate development and training.

These are lovely, very traditional, trees. Thanks for posting them.

I thoroughly enjoyed your pictures. I consider myself fortunate to have been able to visit japan to see the quality and artistry of japanese bonsai for myself. this being said, I am still blown away by the quality of the " for sale " trees at kokufu. makes one wonder what the "keepers" look like ?? a random selection of trees from the sales tables would make a eye popping exhibit anywhere.

The Green Club is in Tokyo. They have a store on premises that sells trees, pots, tools, books, etc. Here's a map, in case you ever get there:

I realize this may seem a little out of taste, but I've always wondered what the prices are like for this level of material. Also, how do prices for "regular" material differ from prices in the U.S.? I've always wanted to know how material is valued in places where the art is so popular. Less expensive because more material is readily available or more expensive because there is more of a demand? Thanks for any insight.

Oh yeah, almost forgot. The pictures are incredible and much appreciated. The pics in the link are especially inspirational. Thanks
