Style: Bujin-ji


The “Bujin-ji” or “Literati” style can be typically found in nature, and it is one of the hardest styles because it’s hard to replicate it in bonsai art. The trunk is usually contorted and grows upwards, the branches are absent or reduced to a minimum, because the sun exposure is generally only towards the apex. These trees are usually placed in small, rounded pots.
