When is the Taikan Bonsai Exhibition 2022 taking place?

This will be the 42nd Nippon Bonsai Taikan Exhibition, taking place between 5 and 8 November 2022. Nippon is a more localized name for saying Japan, for those of you who don’t know. The times haven’t been specified yet, but I assume we’ll have more details in time to come. 

Details about the exhibition

You’ll be seeing the bonsai trees at the exhibition during the fall, as it’s autumn in Japan. That means you’ll be treated to spectacular fall colors, such as orange, brown, and red. With the evergreen varieties, you’ll still have plenty of green leaves in the mix to enjoy.

Of course, there will be bonsai trees with few or no leaves at all. The reason these will be put on display is to show their structure, revealing the thick branches and ramifications of the smaller trigs. They’re beauties to behold, almost as much as the fall colors of the other trees.

Special awards

During the Taikan Bonsai Exhibition, one of the trees will win the Prime Minister award for excellence. There will also be prizes for the Best In Class for the various categories, showcasing how incredible they are. The judging will take place before the event opens to the public, so you’ll only hear the announcements when you’re there for the exhibition.

Everyone that wants to enter their bonsais needs to pay for table placements. The common areas are more affordable than the special locations with large overhanging trees and beautiful displays. It’s bound to be a lovely weekend where you can chat to bonsai amateurs and experts alike. You won’t want to miss this spectacular event.

Are you going to the exhibition?

As much as we would love to be at the Taikan Bonsai Exhibition, we’ll have to pass for the moment. We don’t have any members in Japan at the moment, but we’ll be watching from a distance as everyone posts their photos online.

Please don’t be shy and show us your photos if you manage to go. I personally would love to see what the expo will look like and cover any news related to it. You can either email us your photography to share on our site or just leave links to your social media posts in our comments.

Shaun has two passions in life that combine into an extravagant show on Bonsai Alchemist. The one is for writing and the second bonsais. He’s been writing fantasy and horror novels since 2000, while also creating online content since 2015. He’s involved with writing for films and games. Finally, he’s also the owner of a book publishing company.

He received his first bonsai as a gift in 2009 and has been growing several species in his quiet home in South Africa. He prefers propagating new life instead of buying bonsais at the store. His son and daughter share his love for nature, while his wife stares on at her introverted hermit husband.
