IKEBANA? Flower arrangement?


Ikebana, which anyone interested in Japanese culture may have heard of, means showing off natural beauty and formative beauty using flowers and plants.

Ikeru(生ける) in Ikebana(生け花) also means bringing and maintaining natural life.

So, what is different from Western Flower arrangements?

Flower arrangement features minimal space between flowers and green materials and a pursuit of symmetry.

It is beautiful to use many flowers in abundance.

『It’s like a Flower arrangement. The characteristics described above are well illustrated』

Ikebana, on the other hand is asymmetrical, giving ample space between flowers, greens, and branches.

『It’s Ikebana. It’s asymmetrical and makes good use of space』
