Every year in the Kokufu Bonsai Ten period,
Mr. William N. Valavanis who presides
the International Bonsai Arboretum
brings a bonsai tour to Japan.
This time, he visited Omiya Bonsai Village
accompanying a shooting crew of a Japanese BS TV program,
Ippin (イッピン, masterpiece, fine piece, one thing).
This program introduces by a scientific approach
Japanese traditional products which match a modern life style.
I am glad that bonsai is taken up in a nationwide TV program.
The program is scheduled to be broadcast this April,
but I have one problem.
I don't have a parabolic antenna for BS.
