Omiya Bonsai Village/Omiya Bonsai Museum

The Omiya Bonsai Village, one of Japan’s leading bonsai villages, was established in 1925, when gardeners and bonsai masters who were affected by the Great Kanto Earthquake evacuated here.

At its peak, there were about 30 bonsai gardens, and even today it is known as a mecca for bonsai.
