300,000th visitor

The Omiya Bonsai Art Museum welcomed the 300,000th visitor last Tuesday.

The institution should announce it more,
but it is too humble like I.

This is "Uzushio-chan", a mascot of Kita-ku of Saitama-city where the Omiya Bonsai Village lies.

I don't know if this is for the official publicity of the city or a commercial use or a work for competition.

Anyway, the bonsai should be bigger and the skirt should be shorter.

cf. Five needle pine "Uzushio" from the collection of the Omiya Bonsai Art Museum.
