Jeff Amas sends us photos from Tokyo of the recent Meihin exhibition of suiseki-- the premier annual exhibition for Nippon Suiseki Association.

Interesting that all the stones are displayed on a sand base instead of a carved base.

To sort this out, those objects on a surface covered in white-colored material are in the outside Meihinten exhibit (see attached illustration from Meihinten 2009). The outdoor exhibit typically includes a few important bonsai & large accent plants, which relieve the view of many stones in the exhibit.

Objects on the deep blue fabric are in an indoor exhibit which can be seen in a reflection from one of the gold-colored folding screens, above. The folding screen is at one end of a long indoor exhibition space.

The article by Wil on pages 7-10 of this month's (July) California Aiseki Kai newsletter more fully explains the 50th Anniversary Meihinten. It includes photos of Tom Elias's & Dave Sampson's suiseki in the exhibition. It includes historic stones & explains some unexpectedly composed displays.

The Adobe file link is broken for page 2 of the CAK newsletter, so allow extra time for the 12 pages to load. Those who regularly visit the CAK website should consider joining the club as an e~subscribers (only $10 annually). Access for browsers to new & old editions of the newsletter is provided:
California Aiseki Kai- July newsletter

Wil notes Mr. Matsuura stepping down after this Meihinten from active chairmanship of the Association. Kasahara Manabu is likely to act as Chairman in the future.

Mr. Kasahara's website (original in Japanese), which includes interesting content & several useful links...
Landscape Suiseki website

Mr. Kasahara-- vending at the 2004 Nippon Suiseki Sogoten ("Japan Suiseki Comprehensive Exhibition") at the Green Club (Tokyo)...


Mr. Matsuura deserves a separate thread to acknowledgement his considerable contributions to suiseki and to friendship among enthusiasts internationally.

Wil notes a changing future for Nippon Suiseki Association to which enthusiasts should look forward. I have heard that future NSA suiseki exhibits at the Meiji Shrine are unlikely.

An alert reader privately noted mistakes in my last post on this thread which need correction.

Mr. Kasahara has not been the "Vice President" of Nippon Suiseki Association-- the President has been the head priest of the Meiji Shrine, the Chairman has been Mr. Matsuura, and my understanding (unconfirmed) is that Mr. Kasahara has had standing duties above being a board member. If that is wrong, I hope someone will correct it.

Also, the exhibit where Mr. Kasahara was photographed was the sales area of the 2004 Nippon Suiseki Sogoten ("Japan Suiseki Comprehensive Exhibition"), not the Soguten.

I'll make changes above to assure the post will not re-generate the mistakes or confuse web searches.

Thanks for the corrections!

In picture 24 which is the suiseki which has a white Buddha figure on it the suiban is highly decorated with pseudo pine trees and deer. This is something have not seen before is there a precedent for this?
