What you said about John Naka's quote: " You should style your bonsai like a tree etc.' is very interesting. Almost every pro and amateur are still "styling" their trees like the way of the books. If even Naka and Kamura don't style their trees according to the book wisdom, then why is everybody styling their tree like a bonsai? Take the Bonsai Focus and you will see a lot of "classic" pro made bonsai. They almost look like Chinese penjing. If even the Japanese don't style their bonsai anymore like 50-60 years ago, then what in God's name are the pro's doing? It doesn't make sense to me.

Marc,
I don't understand it either. Let's speak again in fifteen years. they say that a trend has started in Japan too to make bonsai look more natural. Wait until that trend is mainstream.

It would be very helpfull if some subtitles would be added.

Thank you one more time for sharing your knowledge.

Absolutely no subtitles!! Someone has to make a video while I say the same in English. All it takes is a few fools who work hard for nothing.
