In the world of bonsais you never stop learning and advancing. Every day we strive to develop better cultivation techniques, better designs and better pots. We also pay great attention to all details related to exhibition. That’s why the bar is so high in bonsai exhibiting. In Japan they used to say in a very sincere way that Spain has great expertise in bonsai art.
Visiting Japan is a recurrent idea for anybody who is passionate about bonsais.
It’s well known that Japan is the cradle of bonsai art, the place where you can find the best trees, the best materials and most importantly, the best masters.
After more than 10 years entertaining this idea, in January 2009 I packed my bags and got ready for one of the best experiences of my life: to work with Master Nobuichi Urushibata, one of the best in the world.
Every second you spend with him you can’t help but notice that he loves bonsai and this shows in his techniques, his vision and his great enthusiasm for this art.
Nobuichi is specialized in shohin, a type of bonsai that has become increasingly popular. Personally, this has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life and it has definitively made a substantial impact in my career.
