The Bonsai and Suiseki display at the Cherry Blossom Festival will take place the second weekend inside the Japanese Cultural Community Center of Northern California (JCCCNC) at 1840 Sutter St.   Five organizations from the Bay Area — Bonsai Society of San Francisco, Marin Bonsai Club, Yamato Bonsai Kai, California Suiseki Society, and contributions from the Bonsai Garden at Lake Merritt—provide this special display. Bonsai is the centuries old art of cultivating a tree in a pot for display in the garden or, briefly, in the home. Early illustrations show this art in India, traveling to China and brought to a high level of beauty in Japan. From these beginnings, it has traveled throughout the world.
