This Kuromatsu, aka Japanese Black Pine (Pinus thunbergii) was featured at the 27th Japan Bonsai Writer Association exhibition (Nippon Bonsai Sakka Kyokai exhibition), where this photo was taken. I cropped the original photo (see just below) for a closer look at just the tree I found this magnificent tree on The Omiya Bonsai Art Museum‘s timeline. This famous museum is home to some of the best bonsai in the world and this Japanese black pine is certainly no exception. To my eye it is one of the most unique pines we’ve featured in our ten years of blogging (well, nine years and 10 months). It’s so wild and rugged that no matter what, it will never look like a more conventionally styled bonsai. Let alone many Japanese bonsai (some people complain about over-styling in Japan – a half formed notion in my opinion – and a topic for another time) 20% OFF SITE WIDE SALE ends tomorrow night Includes Items That Are Already Discounted SEE BELOW – Here’s the original photo STONE LANTERN & BONSAI TODAY’S FAMOUS PINE BOOK Cropped and blown up for a closer look at the gnarled old trunk STONE LANTERN’S 20% OFF SITE WIDE SALE ENDS TOMORROW NIGHT 20% OFF SITE WIDE SALE Includes Items That Are Already Discounted 20% off is calculated when you check out SALE ENDS WED, DEC 12 AT 11:59PM EST – FREE Shipping Still Applies on Continental U.S. orders 75.00 or more but only if you select Free Shipping when you check out –
