As an author, teacher and philosopher, Mr. Kato inspired countless people around the world to learn the art of bonsai. In 1989, he founded and became the first Chairman of the World Bonsai Friendship Federation (WBFF) whose mission is to bring peace and goodwill to the world through the art of bonsai.
In 2013, the Morikami Bonsai Exhibition was honored to become the 3rd WBFF Resource Center in the United States.
In honor of Saburo Kato and in keeping with his beliefs, the WBFF has designated the second Saturday of May as “World Bonsai Day.”
