    Sorry folks - I searched for hours and couldn't find the photo of myself with Mr. Kato back in 2007. But please check out our blog for other photos of Mansei-en!

Informative

This podcast lacks the exciting banter of Mirai's, but gives us another high-level bonsai podcast and is much appreciated. Bjorn is of course a master, and his cast is short and to the point. He ocassionally gets philosophical but sticks, I think, to the traditional side of things. My only request would be more conversations/interviews. Thanks!

Listen

The depth to his knowledge and commitment to the art is impressive. Not only for bonsai, but about Japanese culture and how they fit together. Thank you Bjorn

FINALLY!

If you are a bonsai enthusiast then you already know about Bjorn and his amazing video blog. There’s no such thing as too much Bjorn so I’m glad to finally have something bonsai related to listen to on the long drive to and from work. I discovered bonsai about four months ago and it was all thanks to stumbling across Bjorn on YouTube. I’ve been hooked ever since. Bjorn has a great way of capturing your attention and taking you through his amazing journeys, making you a part of a world that felt so secluded and private. I can’t wait for the many new episodes to come.
