During our stay in the Tokyo area in 1951 (USAF), we had the opportunity to visit Emperor Hirohito's Bonsai garden. Some trees in his collection were over a hundred years old, according to his gardener, and they were all spectacular. This is an ancient art that takes a lot of patience to get started but the results are worth the time spent, if you don't get frustrated.

The late Roy Sposito of Montclair was an expert on producing Bonsai trees.
