The Japanese hold a deep belief that divinity resides within every element of nature, from rivers and mountains to trees and even individual stones. Bonkei, originating from ancient times, emerged as a means to express the divine beauty inherent in nature. These miniature landscapes were carefully crafted to portray harmony within the natural environment.

Introducing “Framescape,” a unique creation specifically designed for Bonkei and its display in your home. Immerse yourself in the joy of nurturing plants and exploring various arrangements within the Bonkei. Let the display evolve alongside the changing seasons, allowing it to become a medium for expressing your emotions and creating a sense of balance in your surroundings.
