Himeji Castle Saijiki Art Exhibition Bonsai - Bonsai is a Japanese art form using miniature trees grown in containers. This art form comes from Chinese tradition of penjing from which it originated. The Japanese tradition dates back over a thousand years, and has its own set of aesthetics. The purpose of bonsai are pleasant contemplation for the viewer, and the satisfaction of effort and ingenuity for the gardener. Some species of tree are popular as bonsai material because they have small leaves that make them suitable for the compact scope - relatively small and to meet the aesthetic standards of bonsai. The tree's growth is restricted by the pot environment and continually shaped to limit its growth, and encourage vigor to areas requiring further development. Unlike “dwarfing” Bonsai makes use of root reduction, pruning, and defoliation to produce small trees that mimic the shape and style of mature, full-size trees.
