  • To the untrained eye but beautiful, overwhelmed by the famous bonsai. Is made at the request of the grand-children of the elementary school, but was enjoying the interesting commentary and special guest. Staff is kind and gracious time.

  • This is a nice place to learn about bonsai and see the some amazing works, but this is a bit compact, means not so many exhibits, and you are not allowed taking pictures of some.  more »
  • From the previous interest and visited the Omiya bonsai Art Museum for the first time. Number of potted bonsai that have been exhibited in the collection galleries, and between three different types of bonsai are displayed. So it is easy to understand even to people who do not know the bonsai bonsai perspective and species description with pictures of bonsai branches. Also in the audio guide rental is easy to understand. Bonsai is to produce flower pots in the natural landscape is likely, but sensibility and combines natural works of art I think.

  • Beautiful displays some with a fascinating history. Their oldest bonsai is 1000 years old. Currently (Dec 2018) the blue dragon tree is in the small area where you can take photos. Most of the museum does not allow photography. The museum has volunteer English guides who will passionately and thoroughly explain many aspects of bonsai.
  • Gorgeous museum - one tree was 1000 years old! You can spend just half an hour here or hours - really nice.
  • I am a fan of nature and plant person therefore 5 stars.... but if you're not the type then you'd be wasting your time and be bored out of your wits... But if you can appreciate nature then definitely give the bonsa museum a visit
  • Beautiful museum full of true living art jobs, everything is very well maintained and presented in a beautiful way. The staff is really kind and dedicated. Also the museum has student discount, which is great.
  • Three weeks in Japan and this was a highlight! Wondered about the one hour out from tokyo station, however there is an above ground JR train that was interesting trip in its self. Easy to find. The staff spoke good english and were very kind. The exhibition we saw in November was mind blowing!😍 sadly no photos. There are permanent trees you can photo, it was worth the trip for them alone. Certainly a "wow" experience.
