          Thanks TH for the info.
          By the way, I did look on internet, but came up mainly with bonsai clubs or exhibitions - no shops. That's why I was asking for first hand advice. Don't be so harsh!
          Unfortunately I won't have time to go to Fuchu or Saitama, but I'll try Yokohama.
