Inside My Poem Book : Japanese Bonsai

Japanese people have wonderful taste for arts and crafts.The Haiku which we refer in poetry too was first invented by the Basho, a great Japanese poet.Similarly many arts and crafts like Bonsai cultivation , Martial arts, Origami ,Tea cermony and Ukiyo-e  are few wonderful art inventions which are admirable and wonderful to learn from them. 

Japanese practice an art form called Bonsai cultivation which means they cultivate miniature trees that are grown in containers.They focus on long-term cultivation and shaping of one or more small trees in a single container using techniques like pruning, root reduction, potting, defoliation, and grafting to produce small trees that mimic the shape and style of mature, full-sized trees.
