Welcome to
The WBFF Website

WBFF was formed by the Japanese bonsai master Saburo Kato and others to promote international friendship and understanding through sharing the art of bonsai. Every four years, in different places around the world, WBFF holds a World Bonsai Convention. The next convention will be held in Washington, D.C., in 2005.

As a living art form, bonsai brings about a profound appreciation of the beauty of nature. The shared joy and love of nurturing a small part of nature in a bonsai will form a common bond among people wordwide.

This website will enable bonsai lovers around the world to learn more about bonsai and to share their fascination with others. Through this international exchange of ideas, global friendship and understanding will flourish.

As Saburo Kato once said, "WBFF must continually be devoted to the cause of world peace for all mankind!" This website is dedicated to meeting that challenge by fostering the continued worldwide growth of the bonsai movement.

This joint WBFF-NABF website is hosted and underwritten by the North American Bonsai Federation and contains the website of the two organizations.
