Tree market is held at the bank of Kotsuki River in spring and autumn of every year. Many poeple visit the market to enjoy appreciating many kinds of plants or buying them for their gardens. This time we visited the autumn market.
Arrived at Autumn Tree Market
We came to the Autumn Tree Market.
The weather was lovely on that day.
Marketplace was crowded with people.
The market was lively like a festival.
Street vendors of Octopus balls and steamed buns appeared at the market.
I introduce some pictures which we took at the market.
Beautiful Flower Shop
It was autumn, but those flowers made us feel as if Spring came.
Flower bulbs and gardening tools were sold.
Various kinds of young plants were sold.
It is a fun to think which one to plant for your garden.
Personally I love the Dahlia flower (following picture).
Searching for your favorite plant is another way to enjoy the tree market.
Those many kinds of flowers were beautiful.
I found a flower of cotton.
It was surprizing for us to know that we can buy the unique flowers.
Ausome Bonsai Art
Those small young pine trees grow up to masterpieces of Bonsai art.
What a wondefull Bonsai. I wish if I could have it in the living room.
Those Bonsai arts were interesting, so we could forget the elapse of time.
Persimmon is the seasonal fluit of autumn.
Japanese Tree Arts
I found a shop which was selling cute arts of small trees.
Addition of those items will make the garden more interesting.
Small world of Wabi & Sabi.
I put my mobile phone so that you understand the small size of the art.
It will be relaxing to put those kinds of small art at room.
Miniature art on tatami mat.
There are not only gardening shops but also other interesting shops at the tree market.
Children were watching various birds interestingly.
Goldfishes and turtles were sold.
The market is the famous seasonal event of Kagoshima.
If you are interested in the gardening, I am sure you will like the market. Even if we don’t know much about the gardening, it was fun to watch various kinds of plants at the market.
We look forward to visiting the tree market of spring.
