Air Bonsai | Create Your "Little Star"

Air Bonsai is a floating star. How would you like to plant your country's very own bonsai and make a wish on that "little star"?

There are Gods who bless us with colorful seasons on the islands of Japan. The Japanese people cherish this blessing. They live and prosper by making little wishes on great nature and stars. People from around the globe also make wishes on twinkling stars. We believe mankind desires to one day, shine bright like these celestial fragments.

These “little stars” are called Air Bonsai in Japan. Grow and nurture your floating “little star” and watch it thrive! It is only the beginning and the story will continue.

Air Bonsai is comprised of two components: the top half “little star” and bottom half “energy base”. It is a very simple “do-it-yourself” kit. You have the mossy “little star” ready for transplanting your favorite plant. The “energy base” that conducts magnetic energy makes your plant float and rotate. The porcelain for the “energy base” is made of traditional Japanese “Imari”. Mass production is achieved through use of molds for this basic kit. The handmade version of “energy base” is also available, with four designs – “Shiro-tsubaki, Suzu-mushi, Kona-yuki, and Kuro”.
