400-year old Bonsai stolen

Following my recent Bonsai post, I read that seven Bonsai trees have been stolen from a couple of enthusiasts, near Tokyo. The oldest is 400 years old and can’t survive without weekly watering.

Stolen Bonsai

The BBC has an article, here.

The couple’s Facebook page (in Japanese) is here.

Worth bearing in mind if you are offered a bargain Bonsai in the bar this weekend.
