For every highly stylized Japanese bonsai, there's one like this that breaks the mold. It's a Japanese red pine from Japan's 80th Kokufu Bonsai Exhibition (2006).

Sticking with bonsai from famous Japanese exhibitions, it’s back to Kokufu. Though this time it’s Japanese red pines (Pinus densiflora), instead of the more common Japanese black and white pines. And once again, we found the photos on Michael Bonsai.

kokuredpine5Not a great photo, but a worthy tree. Especially if you like eccentric trunks. If you look at the branching, this one is even less stylized than the one at the top of the post.

 

kokuredpine6Saving the best for last. If I had to play favorites, I'd chose this one and the one at the top of the post. BTW: Have you noticed how almost all the trees in this post are in reddish pots? I suspect that's no coincidence.
