bonsai it to me!

Takanori Aiba has been has been building bonsai tree houses for years; born in 1953 in Yokohama, Aiba has taken the traditional art of caring for bonsai trees into a whole new artistic medium, designing miniature buildings and structures around his bonsai.  His designs are delightfully fantastical, yet remarkably realistic, as Aiba makes every effort to design his structures around the bonsai in a manner which would be akin to the scale of real-life.  Aiba is a surrealist.  He was trained in traditional Japanese textiles, is experienced in architecture and one of his greatest hobbies is maze illustration; these three elements combined give him a wonderfully wild imagination.  His partner, Murakami, is a civil engineer and helps to bring Aiba's dreams to reality; he is a "realist sharing dreams with Aiba."  If their bonsai work is anything to go by, then I think they've safely proven that dreams can, indeed, come true.

Bonsai is a Japanese pronunciation of the earlier Chinese term penzai. A
"bon" is a tray-like pot typically used in bonsai culture.[2] The word
bonsai is often used in English as an umbrella term for all miniature trees
in containers or pots, but this article focuses on bonsai as defined in the
Japanese tradition.
