Trees, beautiful trees everywhere

There is a whole lot more to bonsai than you might imagine. 

It is a surprisingly fascinating topic, which makes a visit to the Omiya Bonsai Art Museum in Saitama Prefecture both entertaining and rewarding. 

The museum is just 40 minutes from Tokyo and opened in 2010. It is Japan's first public bonsai art museum. 

If it doesn't sound like your scene, take a look at some of the 100+ artfully crafted masterpiece bonsai trees. I dare you not to be impressed.

Qantas flies twice daily to Tokyo via Sydney (Sydney-Haneda) or Brisbane (Brisbane-Narita). The Brisbane-Narita flights are operated by the refurbished A330 aircraft, with lie-flat seats in Business, brand new economy seats and new in-flight entertainment. The Sydney-Haneda flights are operated by a B747, which features the refurbished A380 interior.
