2010 TAIKAN TEN BONSAI EXHIBITION

Post  William N. Valavanis on Tue Nov 23, 2010 12:57 am

The 30th 2010 Taikan Ten Bonsai Exhibition finished yesterday in Kyoto, Japan. It was an excellent exhibition of approximately 200 bonsai. In addition there was a special "10th Anniversary Memorial Display" of trees with some history. These were not formal displays, just people showing their favorite bonsai.

Attached are photos from the set up and judging, opening and the general exhibition. There were three special displays, the Tokugawa Pine from the Imperial Household Collection (over 350 years in pot), Mr. Iwasaki's bonsai and an exhibit of all Kamogawa suiseki from Kyoto.

The large display areas (with purple bunting) cost approximately $1,000 entry fee, while the smaller displays were only $500.

Enjoy the bonsai attached. More will be published in International BONSAI.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for taking the time to share these photos with us!

It would be interesting to hear how the Rayner pot made its way over.
