Have you heard of Mambonsai? Simply put, the stage is set with a plant and a pot, then the drama unfolds with the placement of small figurines. Mambonsai posses a drive for humor and a humanistic touch giving it a lighter feel from traditional bonsai. Invented by Mambonsai master Paradise Yamamoto, this simple combining of plant and figurines has quickly grown into a popular hobby amongst all ages, with fans growing in Japan and throughout the world.
