It is true that Bonsai conquer space and time, in another words, there is no general concept of them anymore on the little pot of plant. Would you like to reach to the nirvana through this bonsai world? If you had half day free from downtown Tokyo, highly recommend to visit this unique town called Bonsai, the postal address has such name already! Interested in making your own garden a bit of zen style? Omiya Bonsai Village is the place for your quick wisdom. You may find better life with wearing Kimono by just walking in the neighborhood. Omiya Bonsai Village is the center of the Bonsai World along with Bonsai Art Museum.

Tokyo => Ueno => Omiya => Toro station (sounds like sushi but not)


Asakusa => Kasukabe => Omiya-Koen station

You may enjoy walking through the best sacred shrine in Kanto area, Musashi Ichinomiya Hikawa Jinja).
Ikebana Lesson in English Yes, the flower becomes me so that butterfly can find you (^^)
Omiya Bonsai Official Page
Official home page for Saitama-ken, Tokyo's satelite town, which holds Bonsai Town.
The well-known Bonsai house (highly recommended)
Tobu Line does not cover this Bonsai town yet
Which means that it is definately off-the-beaten track. If you've done Nikko, Kawagoe and Asakusa, why not this small bonsai village? Be the only tourist in the town!
JR has Toro station on this map (red line and orange line, next to Omiya)
Not satisfied with this small area, why not whole Japan to explore?
Shohin in Japanese means small (Sho) products (hin). It is true that bonsai is small and tiny but has contents of universal floating enegy in it, similar to your own heart or yourself, small perhaps at height of 160cm - 200cm, but has unlimited possibilities for your own dream!
Extra time for something else?
It is all about JR (Japan Railway, including JNR, Japan National Railway). You may click train numbers to get pictures. It is easy access from both Bonsai town and Omiya station, or zero minute walk from Tetsudohakubutsukan station . Bonsai and trains have good combination to make your full day happy.
 Seikouen Bonsai
 Bonsai school is available while you are in Japan
 to study about whole life even after Japan trip.
 Shunkaen by Kunio Kobayashi san
 For anyone has no time to visit Omiya,
 here's also in downtown, Edogawa-ku, Tokyo.
Extra time or beyond time or harmony time to experience Tea Ceremony?
Several hotels/restaurants offer English speaking Tea Ceremony at Youwa-kai , Happo-en (has nice video clip), New Otani , Hotel Okura Japanese Culture Experience . And here's Sadou-Kaikan in Tokyo (Urasenke Chado in Kyoto). You may also be able to arrange organized tour at JTB Sunrise Tours. Easy going experience? How about Kimono + Tea Ceremony together in Asakusa? Nadeshiko can do. Also tea makes your heart calm and peace here in Nishi-Asakusa.
