Exhibition of Bonsai Plum Trees

Heavenly scented plum blossom in Nagahama

Every year from January 20th to March 10th the heady, spicy fragrance of plum blossom fills a beautiful old house called Keiunkan in Nagahama. Before I visited this exhibition of bonsai plum trees, I thought all bonsai were small, but some of the trees were over 2 meters. Even more impressive, some of them were very old, as old as 400 years! The house is only a few minutes walk from Nagahama JR Station, and brochures, directions and tickets can be obtained from the Visitor's Centre at the the station.
