Japanese flower arrangement is completely different from Western styles. It is derived from a Buddhist custom in which people offer flowers to the soul of the deceased. “Ikebana” has been drawing attention from the world because it places a greater emphasis on the shape of the work, unlike other countries where emphasis is placed on color. There are different schools, but the oldest one is Ikenobo. Our school uses flower stems in special arrangement methods to expressing seven natural elements such as hills, waterfalls and valleys. Expressing the magnificence of nature in the arrangements shape has become mainstream in the “ikebana” world.
