Foreigners carrying bonsai on a JR train.

Maybe they are on their way back from the sales area of Kokufu-ten.


  1. Yes we are on our way back from the kokufu sales area but, the tree doesn't belong to us. It was sold to a customer and needed to be posted. We are apprentices of Aichien, making are way back home after helping setup the sales area.

    1. Thank you for your comment. This is a nice surprise for me.
      And my guess is not really wide of the mark.

      Do you read the Japanese of the original tweet?

      It says "Wow, foreigners have bonsai. A seat for Mr. Bonsai... My mind was soothed before the state examination."

  2. Yes you were pretty much right Murata-San :).

    I'm afraid I cannot read japanese so, thank you very much. It is nice to hear that the people who took the photo had a pleasant feeling from seeing us with the bonsai on the train.
