Announcement    Thank you for visiting my shop "Kodama Forest".
****Please know that we can't ship plant to Hawaii and Alaska!****

I am sorry for the inconvenience but the shipping may delay as I can't ask for assistance for help during this pandemic. I will try my best to fulfill all the orders.

Kodama means "forest sprits" in Japanese words and this business name was chosen because I wish all my kokedama deliver the peaceful forest spirits to new owner of the kokedama and he or she to share the peaceful world to their family and friends.



To expand my dream, I hope my work help to create peaceful earth. I depict kokedama as small earth with little forest plants and I hope everyone enjoy the forest spirits and energy this moss-ball produce.

All kokedama is hand made by myself thinking about people's smile, using the best mixture of soil for each plants' requirement, and they are wrapped with green preserved moss.
I will accept custom order, please contact with me if your favorite plants can be transform to Kokeama, the little earth ball. Please email "Kodama.Forest1104@gmail.com"

I also post live video of how to make kokedama, care instruction, event info on FB/IG. Please follow me and say hi! for me.

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

Plants are like us, living creature. It is delicate and sensitive. I am putting all my effort to send you the healthy Kokedama plants and I have a good review about how shipment is made. If the plants were damaged, you will need to contact with me the date the package was arrive. Please take picture and send it to me. Read more detailed refund policy below...

Refund policy
If the outer box was damaged and thus the plant was damaged, with the proof of picture of the outer box I will refund whole amount of your payment. Please send me the picture the day you received the package. I can't refund if you don't send me the picture.

If the plants was damaged during the shipment, please request for the refund within a day of arrival with the picture.

In the hot/cold weather time: I use thermal pack to ensure the plants health during the shipment but it is your responsibility to track the shipment and open the package as soon as the package arrive. Tracking information will be sent via etsy when the package ship out.
Please send me the picture within a day if the plant was damaged.
I can not accept the claim to be refund after 3-4 days later of shipment for the reason that you may be overwatered or placed in unpleasant location for plants.
There is no calendar date to treat plants (i.e. how often should watered), general care is enclosed in the package however each environment/climate is different that plants need to be adjusted with your climate.

Thank you for your understanding!
Best Regards,

Kanako
