Omiya Bonsai Village

The Omiya Bonsai Village is the general name for the area on the north side of Omiya Park enclosed within the Tobu Noda Line and JR Utsunomiya Line. Known as one of the most outstanding bonsai cultivating areas in Japan, visitors take delight in the bonsai in all seasons as they change from one season to the next.

The Omiya Bonsai Festival is held on May 3-5 every year, when it bustles with the many bonsai lovers who gather there from throughout the country. It is also visited by many bonsai lovers from overseas as the worldwide mecca of bonsai.

Bonsai – natural beauty in concentrated form
Bonsai are a traditional art of Japan that expresses time, space and landscape scenery in its own distinctive form and pursues beauty that transcends forms found in nature. It represents a concentration of abundant emotion stimulated by seasonal change, heartfelt affection for life and esthetic sensation. Bonsai, nurturing a long history, are highly valued overseas as well and the word “bonsai” as one element of Japanese culture has now become firmly rooted as an international word.
