Ikebana Lesson

I’ve always wanted to try Ikebana. I’m glad I could find a class! Everything you need to make a beautiful arrangement is included. There’s an overview of the history of Ikebana as well. It’s fun to take a group to see how each person uses the flowers differently! A must do if you visit Tokyo!

Fantastic! 最高!

Highly recommended. It's fun! You should try!!!
どのツアーも面白そうで選ぶのにだいぶ迷ったあげく、アメリカ人の友人に日本の文化に触れてもらおうという理由で、生け花体験を選びました! が....参加して初めて日本人の私が体験したことのない貴重な文化に触れることになりました。とにかく最初から最後まで楽しかったです!!お花好きな人は特に、そうでない方も是非とも一度体験してみて下さい。ハマります。
