I have ordered two bonsai trees, one for myself and the other at another address to give as a gift. I just received my own bonsai and it looks fantastic! Highly recommended! Thanks guys! 👌
"Good fast delivery"

Good fast delivery, well packaged. It is important that the tree does not dry out during transport. This is super! A manual focused on the type of "bonsai" would have been nice.

Besides that the tree looks awfully good, the service is also fantastic. After the first package was lost in the mail, they immediately switched and provided a solution. 10/10!

The Story of Shirin-Yoku
“It was an honor visiting Meiji Jingū. Meiji Jingū, a shrine in Tokyo, is not very old by Japanese standards. As a tribute to Emperor Meiji and Empress Sh*ken, it was completed in 1920. It is believed that trees provide a conduit between shrines and the gods. A shrine forest, or chinju no mori, is typically thought of as "old primeval forest," bringing us back to "the ancient age of myth." However, at Meiji Jing*, everything was planted from scratch, which required the planting of more than a hundred thousand trees. It was intended to create an eternal forest dominated by long-lived trees such as zelkova or ginkgo, but because an immediate shrine atmosphere was needed, a 150-year plan was designed in which fast-growing trees such as Hinoki cypress, Japanese cryptomeria, and two kinds of pine provided the appearance of a chinju no mori before small, broadleaf species gradually took over.”
