Japanese Maple bonsai (momiji) are especially popular for their soft lush leaves and the seasonal changes they give. Although they are not as iconic internationally as some other Japanese trees such as the Sakura, the Japanese Maple tree holds a very special place in the hearts of people here in Japan. The changing colours of the autumn leaves (known as koyo) is a treasured time of year to appreciate the every changing life cycle of nature.
Japanese Maple are the Yin to the Sakura's Yan. While the Cherry Blossoms bloom and share their beauty in the spring, the Momiji change to beautiful hues of red, orange and yellow in autumn.
