Miyazato Rintaro posted these four small trees last month. Here's a strange machine translation for you... "For Sale. I'm going to give it to the net in the afternoon. This time, from mini bonsai to small pieces, We have a tree with sights. Please contact us"

Shohin means a small thing in Japanese and all four of these trees qualify. They were posted by Miyazato Rintaro . The translations are machine generated, and though they generally tend to be better than they were a couple years ago, they still have a ways to go

This translation for this one says... "14.5 cm itoigawa true kashiwa" (5.7") I just looked up kashiwa a couple places and both said 'oak.' Go figure. By the way, Itoigawa is a variety of Sargent's juniper. Here's a post from a couple years ago about the difference between itoigawa, shimpaku & kishu junipers

Only the size is different on this one... "10.3 cm itoigawa true kashiwa." (4")

 

3

This one says... "13 cm ishizuchi pine" (5.12"). Ishizuchi is a mountain in Japan. Though no variety is given, if I had to guess I'd say Japanese black pine (I'm wrong more often than I'd like to admit, so don't take it to the bank)

5

"17 cm awaji kuromatsu" (6.7"). Kuromatsu is Black pine (Japanese black pine in this case) and awaji is a city in Japan
