Saitama | Bonsai Autumn Leaves at Saitama

Bonsai Autumn Leaves at the Omiya Bonsai Art Museum

The Omiya Bonsai Art Museum, Saitama, is the world’s first publicly-run museum dedicated to the art of bonsai. Located adjacent to the famous Omiya Bonsai Village, the museum houses more than 130 of Japan’s most famous bonsai, as well as bonsai pots and suiseki viewing stones. We also collect and exhibit bonsai-related ukiyo-e (Japanese painting), and historical and folklore materials. Bonsai shows various expressions depending on the season. In autumn, the momiji (Japanese maple) and iwashide (Korean hornbeam) bonsai at the Omiya Bonsai Art Museum begin to color. The changing colors of deciduous tree leaves and the evergreen trees such as pine make the bonsai garden a colorful mosaic pattern -- a sight unique to this season. The best time to see the bonsai autumn foliage is before early December.
