Japanese flower arrangement Ikebana

A life with flowers is nice. Flowers give us the sense of the seasons, good flavor, and peace of mind.

Japanese people have created unique Japanese flower arrangement “Ikebana.” People have admired the beauty of flowers since the ancient time, but ikebana was established in about 600 years ago. Priests of Rokkakudo in Kyoto started arranging flowers into imported vases from Korea or China. From this era, ikebana flowers were for not only the Buddha or God, but also as a decoration for a house. At the same time, Japanese tea ceremony was established and developed. For the room for tea ceremony, ikebana was essential. The main style of traditional ikebana is using kenzan, or needle point holder.

Nowadays, Japanese ikebana have a lot of “Ryuuha” or schools. The unique technique and beauty of ikebana have won good reputation all over the world. We believe that if you have interest in flowers or Japanese culture, you have heard about ikebana at least once.

Then, how about using Japanese traditional flower vase? Without kenzan, flower arrangement is ikebana! You do not have to worry about the types of flowers.
