This art museum opened in 2010, and is the first ever to be public museum dedicated to bonsai. It is adjacent to Omiya Bonsai Village, the so-called ‘holy land’ of bonsai. Objects from the former Takagi Bonsai Art Museum form the core of the museum’s collection, but the systematic collection and display of well-known and superior bonsai, bonsai pots, stones appreciated for their aesthetic qualities, visual artworks such as ukiyo-e that feature bonsai, as well as historical and ethnographic information related to bonsai are also a focus of the museum.
