What you'll do

Let's create ikebana—traditional Japanese flower arrangements—at a modern wine bar. Ikebana is a little different from flower arranging in other cultures. We use just a few flowers for one piece, and we may also use branches, leaves, and buds—which are not normally used—to express the brightness of the plants. You can deepen your understanding of Japanese culture with Ikebana. I will teach you how to handle basic flowers and how to make shapes. So let's make it together. I will teach you how to arrange according to the context—for example, decorating tables and reception areas use different types of arrangements. By the end of this experience, you will be able to practice ikebana when you return home.

I am a former magician. Magic has provided me with a non-routine experience. I discovered flowers when I was working as a magician at a wedding and encountered an ikebana artist. I became interested in ikebana, studied it for five years, and acquired the necessary licenses. I decorated with flowers in my home, and started to live with flowers. I spend my daily life with a richer feeling. When there are flowers, not only does the scenery change, but so do one's feelings. I would like to convey this charm through this experience.
