The town of Kinashi has developed and prospered as the center of Bonsai dwarfed plants, It started more than two hundred years ago when a local pioneer picked pine tree saplings he found on neighboring islands and cultivated them in his own special way and sold them. It has grown into a special product of the area and attracted the increasing number of Bonsai lovers across the country. The elegantly and magnificently shaped dwarfed Kuro- matsu and Goyo-matsu and the gracefully trimmed Nishiki-matsu are especially popular. Today the Kinashi's market share of the Bonsai pine trees in Japan is over 80%, and worldwide the number of lovers of this miniature beauty is ever increasing.
