The art of bonsai is to plant a natural tree in a pot, cultivate it, maintain it by pursuing beauty over natural shape, and appreciate it. It is a Japanese traditional art that is rooted in the kindness of the Japanese toward a living tree, and expressed in a meticulous aesthetic sense. The western part of Takamatsu City in Kagawa (around the Kinashi and Kokubunji areas) is Japan’s top bonsai pine tree producing area, accounting for 80 percent of the national share. Pine trees cultivated in well-drained, sandy loams have a reputation not only for the beauty of their shapes but also for their durability, because their roots are less likely to rot. Now Kagawa's bonsai is well known as the World's "BONSAI".
