Maybe you don't have the time to visit Japan right now, so take a short vacation and see a piece of Japan that I love: Bonsai trees.
Bonsai! 250-year-old Japanese pine
Anyone who has ever been to Japan or even has a passing interest in Japan most assuredly is fascinated by Bonsai. Bonsai is the art of making miniature trees look like real ones that stand hundreds of feet tall and are battered by years of weather.

Yet Bonsai are delicate and tiny and are grown in pots. They require much care and dedication to keep them growing and healthy year round.
I Japan, you can see Bonsai tress that are worth thousands of dollars just sitting in someone's garden in their house. I love Bonsai.
Today, I'd like to introduce you to a great (but unknown) Bonsai site in Japan. And it's all in English. It's called "Bonsai World" Check it out here! (http://bonsai.shikoku-np.co.jp/en/?)
