Goya-Matsu is a 380 year old (1626)
Japanese White Pine at the National Bonsai Museum. This tree was a gift from
Japan to the United States in 1976 in celebration of our country's bi-centennial.
Japan has donated 70+ bonsais to the museum over the years. We made this photo
from a museum postcard. Goya-Matsu stands about 4' tall. A very large formal
selection of conifers. Notice overhead, the ceiling is open to the elements.
