Bonsai at Kyoto Botanical Gardens

Miniature pines, wisteria, maples and more

By Cathy Cawood    - 1 min read

Kyoto Botanical Gardens has quite a big bonsai display with many beautiful and interesting specimens, including wisteria, pines, and several different maples. I loved the trees, although I wished they were displayed more imaginatively instead of just lined up on wooden tables. I thought they looked a little forlorn. In spite of that, there are not that many places where you can see large collections of bonsai, so it is well worth visiting.

 I came to Japan in 2003 to teach English. I lived in Shiga prefecture for 1 year, and it still holds a special place in my heart. I lived in Kyoto for 9 years, then moved to Machida, Tokyo in 2014 after meeting my Japanese partner. I love to take photos, and my Japan in Pictures Facebook page has some 40,000 followers. I have been the Regional Partner for Yamanashi Prefecture since 2014.I am enjoying exploring the prefectures around Tokyo (I like to get off the beaten track), and I hope the photos and stories I share will encourage more people to discover this wonderful country.
