What you'll do

Let’s start off by going to Bonsai museum together. We will meet at the exit gate of JR Utsunomiya line, Toro station. It’s about 30 min from central Tokyo. I would like to guide you inside. I know the place more than anybody else since I am one of the graduates from International Bonsai Academy.
After visiting the Bonsai academy, I would like to take you to my private place to teach you how to make hakoniwa bonsai box garden.

First I will explain about the materials such as soil, stones and several kinds of moss. Be creative. Now it’s time for you to make your original hakoniwa bonsai box.

You can take back your creation after you finish making it.

It will be a special bonsai day for you.

I am an award-winning artist and creator in various fields, I have loved Japanese culture since I was a child. I am a professional makeup artist, aromatherapist, color therapist, pasta artist, the head and owner of a goshuin club and bonsai lover, graduate of International Bonsai academy.

I love Bonsai. I would like to teach about Hakoniwa, the box garden which reflects nature in a miniature format.

Bonsai is the traditional Japanese culture and I would like to pass on the knowledge I have to as many people as possible.
