The international magazine for beginners and experts

We really love bonsai and think it’s a real living art form. Bonsai has a very long history and originates from China. The Japanese learned about bonsai through monks travelling to China about 800 years ago. Today bonsai is practised all over the world and is still growing in popularity. In the West bonsai has experienced a very fast growth and development. Bonsai Focus covers the amazing world of bonsai from various perspectives, Japanese or Western.
