Welcome to a website dedicated to bonsai aficionados of all levels of expertise. Education is the focus, with an emphasis on techniques and design options to make your bonsai better!


Remembering John Naka


John Yoshio Naka was affectionately nicknamed the “Father of American Bonsai,” but a more appropriate title would have been the “World Ambassador of Bonsai“ because he was the most influential and beloved bonsai master of the 20th century. For the centennial of his birth, I've made a video celebrating his life and work.
