World Bonsai Day

Join us for our Fourth Annual World Bonsai Day as we celebrate this important Japanese art, and our world-class bonsai collection – which was named a World Bonsai Friendship Federation Cooperation Center in 2013. World Bonsai Day remembers the legacy of bonsai master Saburo Kato, a key figure in the modern history of bonsai. Visit us and learn more about Mr. Kato’s influence as well as the art of bonsai.
