I don't see many newspaper articles on bonsai or origami but I just found one at the link below.

A man with big plans for the small world of bonsai

I visited the nursery/museum in Nov. of 2011. The Master was already away setting up at ASPAC but his wife was a gracious hostess. I was with Rob. K (BCI President and IBC Member) as well as Omar and Jose Jimenez from Mexico. The young man in the photos below is Omar. The entrance is on a small side street, a short taxi ride from the Tokyo Disneyworld area.

Interesting and informative article, indeed.
Thanks for posting the link to the newspaper, Robert.
I selected the following phrases out of Kunio Kobayashi's words :

"Ultimately, this respect for nature is what bonsai is all about."

"... ...to develop a good bonsai, one has to understand the soul of the tree."

Just to say thank you Billy for adding your photos. This forum is such a great resource in so many ways. Especially for me while I wait for winter to end here.
