To celebrate its 20th birthday, the Bonsai Society of the Central Coast is hosting a fun day for the family with a Japanese flavour. The Community studios at the Gosford Regional Gallery and Arts Centre, will have free displays of Bonsai, Suiseki, Ikebana, Calligraphy, and silk kimonos. In addition to the displays, expert demonstrations will be provided.

9am - Suiseki
10am–12:15pm - Bonsai with four top Australian bonsai experts
12:45pm–1:15pm - Aikido demonstration
1:15pm–2:15pm - Ikebana and
2:15–4:45 - Bonsai will be back on the stage

Have you already picked up a few new Japanese words? Many people enjoy collecting and displaying stones, Suiseki is the Japanese art of stone appreciation. Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arranging that emphasizes form and balance. Bonsai and Calligraphy are better known art Japanese art forms, and Aikido is a Japanese Marital art.

Of course, the Edogawa Commemorative gardens are always a joy to explore but watch out for the Anime actors having fun in the gardens from 1:30pm–4.30pm. Children will enjoy having a photograph taken with their favourite anime or take a group photo of all the anime actors at 2:15pm. While exploring the gardens you can also enjoy the sculptures by Japanese artist, Koichi Ishino. Children have the opportunity to make a bonsai to take home, and dress up in traditional Japanese costume to be photographed. Watch members of our local community demonstrate Japanese calligraphy and perhaps take home a personalised piece to treasure.
