Kokedama (Ko Kay Da Ma) is unique form of Japanese art utilizing live plants. Similar to Bonsai, Kokedama is a new art form that has become prominent in Japan. While Bonsai is comprised of small trees which are artistically formed, Kokedama involves both indoor and outdoor plants; varying from household plants to wild flowers to create a unified theme. Kokedama is a peaceful art form, which due to its small and portable size, can be displayed indoors.

It is beautiful living art which gives peaceful and calm mind to people. I would love to contribute my time to keep this Japanese tradition and hopefully become popular plants art so that it will pass on to future children.

My wishes with this Kokedama plants are that every owner enjoy and maintain the peaceful mind and energy that this small forest spirit ball produces.

Sincerly,

Kanako Yamada

Welcome to Kokedama World!

Kokedama (Ko Kay Da Ma) is a form of plant. Plant is growing out of moss ball. The moss ball is made out with soil to grow plant inside and then covered green preserved moss. It is ancient Japanese botanic technics takes off from Bonsai. Unlike traditional Bonsai, Kokedama can be enjoyed indoor as well as outdoor depend on the type of plant and you can make kokedama with almost any plants. Great way to keep your houseplants close to you. It is a beautiful addition as house decor that bring tranquility to keep inner peace to you.

My Uncle, Fumio Yamada was a Bonsai teacher in Japan and he has greatly influenced on me to start this Kokedama business. It was his strong will to pass on to people how these wonderful small plants play a vital role for our life, providing us a pleasant and tranquil feeling. In his word, “These small plants reminiscent of forests, peaceful little earth that are offering us calm and a tranquil mind.” ​The business name Kodama Forest was named to reminiscent of forest spirit. Uncle Fumio’s words stuck in my mind for a long time and when my father introduced me about Kokedama, I fall in love with Kokedama. I like to become a Kokedama artist and to share my uncle’s peaceful world and pleasure to people. Kokedama has short history and started to widely known in Japan however it is still easily fades from the culture because there are fewer Kokedama artists in Japan. It is a beautiful living art which gives a peaceful and calm mind to people. I like to keep this tradition alive and hopefully pass it to future children. My wish is every owner of a Kokedama plant enjoy and maintain the peaceful mind and energy that this small forest spirit ball produces.
