- Report of the Nagahama Bonsai Exhibition.
Bonsai are miniaturized potted plants and trees for aesthetic appreciation and are an art form unique to Japan. The pine tree is cited as typical, but all sorts of other plants and trees are nurtured. When the roots have grown too long, the plant is taken out of the pot, cut, planted in fresh dirt. Then the branches are diligently pruned, and wire is somethimes wrapped around the trunk and branches to shape them to the desired configuration. To keep this up as the trees and plants grow, they are handed down across several generations. To complete the ideal shape requires a considerable amount of knowledge and labor, even for an expert, but it has an intimate appeal as a hobby.
