Mirai, a distant dream, forever out of reach.

Mirai in Japanese means ‘future.’ It refers not to the immediate future, but to a distant dream, a romantic thought, the future yet to come, ever out of reach, unobtainable, and continually evolving.

Led by bonsai professional Ryan Neil, what started as an idea has expanded to a movement. We are on a mission to create a new era in bonsai, where compositions reflect the vast array of native landscapes and cultures that are formed in their midst.

Bonsai Mirai is a company, a place, a practice, an ecosystem of creators. We create trees that connect you - to your culture, natural surroundings, and to the spirit of the individual.
