We could have easily spent the entire day at this place! You enter through a very eclectic gift shop, greeted by very friendly puppies. We met the owners who shared their love of Bonsai and a little history of the place. When we entered the garden and began looking at the small trees, we were amazed at how old they... More

We have driven past this place dozens of times. It comes up so quickly it's easy to miss. it looks like a dump from the road (actually was a landfill at one time) but behind the door is a spectacular gift shop followed by an amazing bonsai garden. Both the gift shop and garden are huge- they keep going and... More

A fascinating walk through beautiful examples of bonsai sculpture, with one dating back to 300bc. The gift shop is full of interesting collectibles. It's easy to fly by the entrance so be on guard.

One of a kind in Bremerton and Kitsap County. Run by long time residents and owners, the Robinson's business is a joyful work in progress. Must see ... not only an amazing gift shop, items collected froms diane's Asian travels as well as locally handcrafted art and decorative items, but Dan's collection of specimen trees and bonsai are amazing. He... More

This was a fun, unplanned side trip. We met and talked with Dan Robinson, who creates the bonsai trees. There are many different types of trees that have been transformed into lovely bonsai shapes. The oldest tree dates back to 300 BC, based on the tree ring count. The garden is located on the edge of the bay, and provides... More

We haven't been there in a long time but they have interesting things for sale. They now have another store in Gig Harbor too. So, things must be looking up!

It was very educational. Walking around and reading about all the different plants and trees was amazing. I really learned a lot. It is a great place to take children to learn about the different plants and trees.
