After leaving the Omiya Bonsai Art Museum, I stumbled upon a monument which is at the beginning of this video I was told by a Japanese lady that this was a bonsai shrine. Later I did some checking and found the information in the Bonsai booklet titled Omiya Bonsai. The back ground to the monument is as follows:
Ritaro Shimizu (Seian) contributed greatly to the establishment of Omiya Bonsai Village. In March 1935, volunteers gathered for the tenth anniversary of the village and erected the monument to honour his achievements.
I visited a number of Bonsai Nurseries in Omiya Village, most of them did not allow taking of photographs, except the one in this video.
