PROFILE: Bonsai Master, Masashi Hirao

Hirao was born in Ikeda-machi, Miyoshi-shi, Tokushima Prefecture, Japan. While studying at Kyoto Sangyo University, he made a visit to Hojo Garden designed by architect Mirei Shigemori at Tofukuji Temple and was deeply impressed by its beauty. Since then, he has had his sights on carrying on this aspect of Japanese culture and has devoted himself to preserving it as well. Determined to pursue his passion, Hirao apprenticed at the bonsai garden, Kato Manseien, in Bonsai Cho, Saitama and studied the art of bonsai making under Bonsai Master, Saburo Kato. Master Kato once said to Hirao, “Be the one to spread the knowledge and beauty of the Japanese bonsai not only in Japan but also overseas.” Hirao has kept his promise to his master, and performs bonsai demonstrations, workshops, and special events around the world. He was chosen as a Japanese Cultural Envoy for 2013 and spent 4 months in 11 countries to teach people the beauty and joy of Bonsai where he has gained a cultural exchange through bonsai.
