I visited this nursery in February 2010. It was minded by just one person who was cleaning the brunches of a Black Pine. He wasn’t interested in talking to me, so I just wandered off looking at the trees and there were enough of them to see. Photography was prohibited, so I just took a couple of shots from the gate (see images above). The current owner of Toju-en is Hiromi Hamano. His farther Motosuke Hamano had several students who became bonsai masters in their own right. The most famous of them is Masahiko Kimura who trained there for eleven years from the age of fifteen till 1966. Motosuke Hamano passed away in 1991.
