An ichii is the Japanese name for a Japanese yew, a type of evergreen coniferous tree that grows in Japan and other parts of Asia. It is a popular species for bonsai, as it has dark green needles, reddish-brown bark, and fleshy red fruits. Ichii bonsai can be styled in various ways, such as formal upright, informal upright, slanting, or cascade. They require well-drained soil, moderate watering, and partial shade. They can tolerate cold temperatures, but should be protected from frost. Ichii bonsai can be pruned and wired throughout the year, but care should be taken not to damage the bark or the fruits.
