Keiichi Fujikawa is a professional bonsai artist from Ikeda City, Japan. He is the second generation proprietor of Fujikawa Kouka-en, the Kansai Area's premier bonsai nursery. Born in 1963, Mr. Fujikawa's involvement with bonsai began while attending a university. Each day after class, he would assist his father, Minoru Fujikawa, with the basic chores around the family nursery. Upon graduating from the university, Mr. Fujikawa was accepted as a full-time bonsai apprentice at Mansei-en Nursery in Omiya, Japan. Under the guidance of world-renowned bonsai artist Saburo Kato, he spent the next 5 years developing his knowledge and understanding of bonsai. Today, Mr. Fujikawa is a certified bonsai professional by the Japan Bonsai Association and maintains one of the most impressive and diverse bonsai nurseries in central Japan.
