Ueno Green Club, Tokyo

I also went to Ueno Green Club where they hold an annual bonsai market in conjunction with Kokufu Bonsai-ten. Here are some of the highlights in pictures.
1 – A stall specializing in larger trees.
2 – A stall specializing in medium and small trees.
3 – Advanced bonsai stock from plantation (Japanese Maples).
4 – Advanced bonsai stock from plantation (Japanese Black Pines).
5 – Mame bonsai pots by Heian Kouzan ranging in price between $5,500 and $7,000.

They also had suiseki, books, and lots of different tools including some fancy power tools for carving. Antique bonsai pots were impressive, some are large, more than 100 years old with nice patina, but their prices were shocking.
