International bonsai, tea and suiseki 4-day festival Bonsai Slovakia belongs with its manifoldness and scale to very singular events organised in Slovakia, linking extensive bonsai exhibition and non-stop cultural program. 40.000 visitors crossed gates of 19th year of Bonsai Slovakia this year.

 A special mention must be given to the young Japanese bonsai master Takuya Suzuki and energetic tsugaru shamisen player Keisho Ohno. Audience also had a chance to compare 15 types of traditional matcha, followed by the performance of bartenders who turned matcha into high class cocktails. What a combination of art and modernity, traditions and youth.

As Bonsai Slovakia belongs to the biggest bonsai exhibitions in Europe, it strives to remain a platform bringing cultures together, create friendships and deliver that much needed harmony into people’s lives. Also thanks to Japan, its tea and bonsai.

The exhibition focusing on the drawings by M. Koscielniak, the Holocaust survivor was organized successfully. It was one of the series of successive activities I have dedicated my life for nearly two decades, the artist’ wife entrusted the precious drawings to me whom she put trust the serious writer about Holocaust, to safely preserve and exhibit to as many people as possible in Japan. This lecture that I talked this fact and my determination to return the drawings to Poland gave a great emotion to the audience. And they were given profound insight with the drawings and wish to show them to the next generation as well. In order to respond to the requests, I  am now seeking the way to obtain fund to create the accurate reproduction (replica) of the drawings.

From a traditional Japanese performing art to puppet artistry charming the world

The performance of Wonder of Karakuri Ningyo has been a unique opportunity to discover a traditional puppet art with 300 years of history. Karakuri are traditional puppets in castelets with a very sophisticated mechanism that could make them seem like robots or antique machines, in fact it is said that there are the forerunners of the robots. The way that Mrs. Yasuko Senda explained what Karakuri Ningyo was and the way as Mr. Shobei Tamaya showed the audience how the puppets worked were such interesting that they won the adults and children audience from San Sebastian they were astonished looking at those small creatures with delicate movements. They played 10 times in different places of San Sebastian, from Miramar Palace to a Mall, and in Tolosa; in every place the answer of the audience was a huge applause. Karakuri Ningyo friends were also one of the most interviewed by the media.

Traditional etiquette of Japan wins attention in Europe. Lecture on etiquette, archery practice and workshop on manners by 31st-generation descendant of Ogasawara School's originator.

Three main cities in Poland have been visited: Kraków, Wroclaw and Warszawa. In each of the locations there were lectures, workshops and presentations held. In each of the cities a substantial number of participants had an opportunity to experience, recognize and understand and practice the basic forms of the traditional Japanese etiquette. Active lectures and workshops participation and public radio interview have brought a very big interest for continuing this form of presentation of the Japanese culture in the future. There is a substantial interest in arranging a yabusame (horse mounted archery) and the Ogasawara family treasure exhibition as a part of the 100th Anniversary of the Japanese-Polish diplomatic relations establishing celebration in 2017/2018.
