高松で盆栽・漆芸・陶芸に触れる旅 Bonsai Trip in Takamatsu

地元情報 Local Info.


I arrived at Kinashi Station, just 2nd station from JR Takamatsu Station. “Kinashi 鬼無” means “no ogre”.


TAKUMIKUMO VILLAGEを敷地内にオープンされたという中西珍松園(なかにしちんしょうえん)を訪ねました。

The Kinashi and Kokubunji areas in Takamatsu City are Japan’s leading producers of black pine bonsai. Exports to overseas are also thriving.

I visited a local bonsai producer, Nakanishi Chinshoen, which opened TAKUMIKUMO VILLAGE.

盆栽と彫刻 Bonsai and Sculpture




In a simple and open space, not only bonsai, but also lacquerwares, ceramics, metalworks, and stoneworks by craftsmen in Takamatsu are displayed.

Here you can enjoy a guided tour in the bonsai village, and try making a moss ball planter, lacquer carving, and pottery.

中西さんご夫婦からお話しを伺いました。コロナ禍前、盆栽に関心のある方が海外からも訪れていたものの、検疫の問題で盆栽を自国に買って帰ることができない。そこで、盆栽の生産地を実際に見てもらい、少しでも体験できる場を提供したい、さらに、盆栽のみならず、漆芸や陶芸など、高松市内の匠たちとも連携して、このTAKUMIKUMO VILLAGEを開設されたとのこと。訪日客だけでなく、興味のある日本人にもぜひ、体験してほしいです。

I talked with Mr. Nakanishi and his wife. Many people with an interest in bonsai had visited there even from overseas, but due to quarantine issues, foreign tourists were unable to buy and bring bonsai back to their home countries. Therefore, they opened TAKUMIKUMO VILLAGE with the other craftsmen to offer a place where tourists can actually see the production of bonsai and experience Takamatsu traditional crafts. I would like not only foreign visitors but also Japanese people to visit them.


It takes 2.5 hours to walk around the village of bonsai and experience craft making. The fee is 14,300 yen per person. Reservations are required, but if you are staying at Guest House Wakabaya, please feel free to contact us first.
