How do I start red pine seeds?

I am very, very new at this, I won Japanese Red Pine Seeds and I am wanting to start. I read one place that I first have to soak in water until they sprout and in this article it is showing a different method. Could I please get some feed back on what would the be the best way. This suppose to be Bonsai Red Pine seeds. Thank you for your help
