92nd Kokufu-ten, 2018
One hundred and fifty-one displays are set up for a few days, then another one hundred and fifty-one displays are set up after a day-off to facilitate the change. The quality of the trees on display is outstanding. I could share photos of any eight trees from the exhibit and write at length about what makes them great. One of the first trees visitors saw when they entered the exhibit was a large white pine clump growing on a rock. The composition sat in a bronze doban filled with sand to suggest an island setting. Unlike most prize-winners, this tree required some effort to follow the lines of the trunks.
Kokufu-ten Bonsai exhibition
This, the finest and most prestigious bonsai exhibition in the world has always been held in the same venue for 91 events. When Norio Kobayashi and Count Matsudaira starte d the exhibition in it was held twice yearly. The exhibition was stopped during WWII, then resumed on a yearly basis. Several years ago the exhibition needed to be moved to a nearby industrial building because the museum was being remodeled to become handicap accessible. The renovations created a smaller exhibition area with fewer number of bonsai being displayed. So, the Nippon Bonsai Association simply changed the show into two parts, thus being able to display more trees and also receive more exhibition fees from their members. This year there was a noticeably, for me at least who has attended most of the exhibitions for over 45 years, fewer trees displayed.
