I had posted a round-up of the recent Taikan-ten in an earlier post. Just wanted to add a last minute entry from Peter.

32nd Annual Taikan-ten

32Taikan-ten-16Japanese Maple Shishigashira.  This tree won the Kokufu prize at the 86th show.

A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to attend the 32nd annual Taikan exhibit held in Kyoto.  The show was held on November 23rd-26th and considered the second most famous show in Japan. I took photos of many of the trees and are going to share them with you in this post.  If you’d like to see some photos from the previous year, please click here.  Again, this year I didn’t take photos of all the trees in the show but some of the ones that caught my attention.  I hope that these photos will motive you readers out there to plan a future trip to Kyoto and see the show with your very own eyes.  Not to mention that Kyoto is amazing during the Fall with all the colors.

Well then……
