Table of Contents for Bonsai Art of Japan Series
« on: September 20, 2014, 07:13 PM »
Bjorn has done a wonderful job making the BAoJ Series.  I think it would be nice for members here to have a list of topics covered.  So, here you go:

Ep 1:  Fujikawa-san and Apprentice Interviews, Introduction to Fujikawa Kouka-en
Ep 2:  Eleaegnus Refinement, Japanese Maple Refinement, Visit to Arashiyama (Tenryu-ji, Bamboo Forest, and Osawa Pond)
Ep 3:  Kokofu Shimpaku Juniper Restyle and Cryptomeria japonica refinement
Ep 4:  Chamaecyparis obtusa Summer refinement, Interview with Bjorn Bjorholm, and my fave Saiho-ji / Moss Temple visit
Ep 5:  Kifu Size Shimpaku Juniper refinement and Trachelospurmum asiaticum (Star Jasmine) Refinement
Ep 6:  Shohin Display and kung-fu fight scene
Ep 7:  Japanese Red and Black Pine decandling
Ep 8:  Hinoki Cypress Clump Restyle and visit to Yanai-san's Japanese Tea Garden
Ep 9:  Sekka Hinoki Restyle and vist to Kiyomizudera
Ep 10:  Japanese White Pine Styling and Information
Ep 11:  Interview with Naoki Maeoka and Bunjin Shimpaku Restyle
Ep 12:  Container Changes for Hinoki Cyrpess and Trident Maple, Grafted White Pine Restyle
Ep 13:  Parody Episode (currently not online)
Ep 14:  Clump Style Japanese White Pine Restyle / Evaluation of Character and "bending the rules"

I'll post more later.

I get why I was pulled, but I had tried to find the parody episode again and noticed it was missing. The series is unbelievable. I still haven't watched continuum but I plan to get around to it soon.
