The term "Jushin" means the top of the tree in bonsai art. It is also called "atama" (head of the tree) or "shin" (apex of a tree). The jushin is an important element in creating a balanced and harmonious bonsai shape. It should fit in with the surroundings and the overall style of the tree. The jushin can be formed by pruning, wiring, or bending the branches and trunk of the bonsai.
