Masahiko Kimura

The World famous bonsai master

He was born and raised in Omiya bonsai village.

In order to become a bonsai artist, he first learned Bonsai studies at Tohju-en as being an apprentice of Motosuke Hamano, the founder of the garden.

He specializes in Coniferous trees like Shinpaku juniper and pine. Most of the trees are award winning and recognized by magazines and websites.


His style of bonsai making has broken many traditions for years because he creates bonsai at least for a day by general bonsai tools such as an electric saw and iron wires.

Now his works are settled as "contemporary bonsai" which has been respected by many bonsai lovers.
