  Coming up soon the Omiya Bonsai Art Museum (Saitama, Japan) has organized an Autumn Special Exhibition Commemorating their 10th Anniversary and Sister Partnership with the National Bonsai & Penjing Museum in Washington, DC. Bonsai, Beyond the Border: Yuji Yoshimura, a Bonsai Artist Across the Ocean Exhibition commemorates and highlights the life of a Japanese bonsai artist who spread bonsai to the United States. The exhibition will feature historical photographs, documents and other items illuminating the lifetime work and passion of Yuji Yoshimura and his 37 year career in the United States and abroad. His life’s goal was to introduce the appreciation, artistry and practice of elegant classical bonsai art. His father, Toshiji Yoshimura, Kofu-en Bonsai Garden in Tokyo, was a leader of the Japanese bonsai and suiseki communities who helped to establish the arts in the modern world. His first son, Yuji Yoshimura, a second generation bonsai artist studied with his father and graduated from the Tokyo Horticultural School in 1938. He continued his goal for expanding bonsai outside Japan, beginning by co-authoring The Japanese Art of Miniature Trees and Landscapespublished in 1957, which is considered to be the “Bonsai Bible” and first authoritative bonsai book in English. In June 2015 Yuji Yoshimura was the second person inducted into the Bonsai Hall of Fame at the National Bonsai & Penjing Museum at the US National Arboretum, in Washington, DC.
