On Our Cover

 
BCI Director Sujata Bhat photographed this masterpiece Shimpaku Juniper, estimated to be 1,000 years old at the 8th World Bonsai Convention in Saitama City. This juniper was found in the mountains of Itoigawa City in 1983. It was handed down to different owners, eventually coming under management of Saburo Kato, the third manager of Mansei-en in Omiya Village. The tree, called Flying Dragon—Hiryu in Japanese—is registered by the Nippon Bonsai Association. To honor Kato’s achievements in bonsai, it was chosen as the symbol of the 8th World Bonsai Convention, 2017.
