Bonsai

A bar I often go to in Ebisu has a lot of bonsai and the owner occasionally teaches bonsai classes in the afternoon. He asked me on Thursday if I could come to his class Saturday. Apparently NHK was filming for a short segment.

 

You get a little nervous seeing the rather large equipment they use. I had fun at the bonsai class though and what you see is my creation. They were filming the other girl's bonsai and I took advantage of the light they had setup to get a few shots.

 

The segment should run on NHK on 7/3 at 6:35 or so for about 10 minutes. The section on bonsai is probably only a couple minutes long. The theme they said was 'green', so they'll be covering about 4 different stories in 10 minutes or so. Fun experience and my first if very brief TV appearance.
