Ikebana(Japanese flower arrangement)experience in Kyoto

Discover the spirit of flower arrangement in Japan!


We offer Ikebana lessons, tea ceremony and Kimono wearing. Did you ever wonder - what’s the difference between western flower arrangement and Japanese Ikebana? What kind of instruments do we use at Misho-ryu Ikebana school in Japan?
The distinctive difference is the space between flowers. While Japanese Ikebana needs a lot of space to create its beauty, western flower arrangement put the flowers in the vase without spaces. This difference is similar to the difference between Japanese and western style paintings.
Just as the athletes of Karate or Judo train the same styles again and again, just as the tea master practice “the way of tea” for years, we also practice 3 types of fundamental styles many times as a beginner. For example, I learned the fundamental ways of arranging for 3 years before my master allowed me to try another style.
In this 45-60 min Ikebana lesson, an instructor will give you the explanation about history or how to cut them at first, then you can learn the most popular & authentic way of Japanese flower arrangement.
