I am proprietor of Nomoto Chinshoen, a bonsai nursery in Miyazaki, Japan. I apprenticed under Kihachiro Kamiya at Kihachien in Aichi prefecture for 5 years and received the Professional Certificate from the Nippon Bonsai Association. One of my client’s trees won the Kokufu Prize. You can ask questions now - I will begin answering Saturday evening (January 17th).
Note: the site’s moderators, Jonas and Jeremiah, will do the typing.
Edit: thank you for the questions.
Jonas asked, ‘What do you want to tell the bonsai world?’ I say my wish is for more people to love bonsai.
Thank you very much for the great questions - you can see me on Facebook.
