Visit to Bonsai Village in Saitama

Saitama
3 hours 30 min

As I am living in a walk distance from Bonsai Village, I can guide you very effectively. Bonsai Village is located In Saitama City. It takes about one hour from the center of Tokyo by rail. At present day, there are five nurseries of Bonsai and The Omiya Bonsai Art Museum. Each of the nurseries has their own characteristics you may enjoy. Some have lady-favorite Bonsai, and some has large size Bonsai. You may buy vessels and tools specialized in Bonsai nursing. You could even buy Bonsai itself( you need some complicated procedures to export them). Bonsai village is within only 15 minute by foot. You can enjoy walking in quiet town(village) by only one hour trip from the downtown of Tokyo.  The museum has about 150 Bonsai. Some of them are 1000-2000 years old and you can also observe the staff caring them at a short distance. The museum also has three typical TOKONOMA (caves) with best suited Bonsai. There are English brochures which is very simple and volunteer guides with little foreign language efficiency.

Farm tour Saitama in June

Miki san was flexible and conscientious in planning for our farm tour which required her to serve as an interpreter. She speaks English fluently and was enthusiastic with our plan. She was on time, did additional education in advance, and even came prepared with pertinent materials. We enjoyed getting to know Miki san further during lunch with her.

Mimi K.

I understand Mimi-san really wanted to learn about fruits, so I wanted to share the information as much as possible. It was a hot day, so I was worried about everyone's health, but I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed the tour. Your family were all very kind, and I was really happy to be your guide. Thank you very much!

An amazing guide for an amazing place!

Nao-san was extremely helpful in navigating us during our tour. As an engineer, it was amazing thing to visit the Metropolitan Area Outer Underground Discharge Channel (G-Cans). Nao-san helped with both the casual and technical interpretation throughout our tour, and on top of this, made us feel very welcome! I highly recommend him!!

Robert R.

Dear Robert san It was my great pleasure to guide you in Underground Shrine and glad to know there are enthusiastic engineers about Underground Shrine near from my home. It was a very pleasant and enjoyable trip. Thank you for coming to my neighborhood! Nao

Excellent experience!

Mr Nobu is a wonderful and highly recommended guide! He's very client-oriented and helpful. Everything went so smoothly - from discussing and organizing a private tour to G-Cans to the actual tour. We're very thankful and hope we have a chance to organize something together again!

Natalia D.

Thank you very much for your review. I am glad to know that you were happy and enjoyed the tour. G-Cans tour is a bit special tour but would be interesting for people who like it. Looking forward to talk with you again! Nobu
