Thank you for your interest in attending the Intensive Bonsai Course at Eisei-en. We are dedicated to assisting you in achieving your goals in creating quality bonsai art. Enroll in our intensive programs and develop the requisite skills to create outstanding bonsai under the tutelage of Bjorn L Bjorholm.


The Intensive Bonsai Course covers all topics related to Coniferous & Broadleaf Bonsai species, from Pines and Junipers to Maples and Olives. In each session, we will discuss a variety of species and techniques for each.

How does it work?


After enrolling in the course, students will travel to Eisei-en two times per year for four days each time over the course of three years to complete the full program. For further program details and costs, click the button below!
