The following Japanese wholesaler does not trade on the net, but you can ask them for a copy of their most recent Tokoname-ware catalogue and price list. It lists about 4000 to 5000 pots of different shapes, sizes and glazes. They also sell good quality tools, wire and probably anything else you ask them to supply. From: Reiner Goebel

The following supliers catalog is entirely in Japanese, but the item codes are in Romaji, so you can use it fairly easily. If they don't know you, they will charge you for the catalog, if you can get one at all. They only accept large orders (usually >$5000), and frankly, it's not really worth it unless you are making larger orders. - Alan Walker

Both times that I went to Japan I visited Omiya's bonsai village and enjoyed the experience immensely. Mansei En, home of Saburo Kato, is definitely worth the train trip from Tokyo, as are the many other Bonsai gardens (most within easy walking distance from each other).
