Post  wen on Mon Mar 26, 2012 9:02 am

I am attending a conference in Oakland CA, and I am planning to visit the Utah National Park after March 29th, and come back at April 2nd.
Anyone can tell me anywhere around Oakland that I can see viewing stones ?

Viewing Stone Display Oakland CA area

If you can get to San Francisco there used to be a display in Japantown in the area ( I think the hotel) near the Asian Grocery. Other location was a shop on Grant St on the hill in Chinatown that used to sell Chrysanthemum stones. Just up a way from Sutter St. if my memory is correct. I haven't been there since 2004 so perhaps someone can update. There are bonsai clubs in those areas that you could contact http://www.bssf.org/ and http://www.gsbf-bonsai.org/

and you could contact Janet Roth, I found her on a net search.

Hi, Robert
Thank you very much!
I just visited China Town yesterday, and spend only a few minutes and hurried to the bart station to go back to Oakland before evening. I was told that Oakland streets are crowded with robbers when it is dark Smile
I will try to go to the several places you recommmended in San Frasisco. It is very conenient by bart and muni.
