The Japanese Friendship Garden of Phoenix celebrates Bonsai & Pottery Exhibit

PHOENIX – The Japanese Friendship Garden of Phoenix invites residents to its 4th Annual Bonsai Exhibit sponsored by Scottsdale Bonsai Society, Phoenix Bonsai Society and Nakama Bonsai Kai.

The word “Bonsai” is a Japanese term, which translates as “planted in a container.

“This art form is derived from an ancient Chinese horticultural practice, part of which was then redeveloped under the influence of Japanese Zen Buddhism. It has been around for well over a thousand years.

This year we will be joining our Bonsai exhibit with another piece of Japanese artistry, pottery and Ikenobo Ikebana (Traditional Flower arrangement) display.

Not only will beautiful and authentic Arts be displayed by Bonsai enthusiasts and talented artists, visitors will also learn about the philosophy of Bonsai, Pottery and Ikenobo Ikebana.
