This show celebrates the winter season in the Japanese tradition. The Three Friends of Winter is a silhouette bonsai show, featuring trees that are in their dormant phase, which highlights their branch structure. Each bonsai is exhibited in an artistic setting with an accent object such as suiseki, incense burner, statuary, or pottery. Includes family activities on Saturday and Sunday such as creating scrolls, storytelling and a suminagashi demonstration.
