Description

Japan is known for its kimonos, sake, and Tea Ceremony. The delicate art of flower arranging is another product of Japan. Known as Ikebana and translated as “arranging flowers” the practice of creating beautiful pieces began in the 7th century when people started to leave flowers at altars across the country.

When in Osaka a visit to the Maikoya must include Ikebana, the art of flower arrangement.  You will learn about the history of Ikebana from a teacher with years of experience in the art. The instructor is familiar with different techniques and styles and sharing knowledge about the art form. If you are searching for a novel experience that is also relaxing and soothing Ikebana is a perfect choice. Students will receive four fresh picked flowers to use in their arrangements. Although there are guidelines or rules for Ikebana, the result comes from personal choices while giving thought to what you wish to communicate. Ikebana encourages the relationship between the student and the natural world. Practitioners often work in silence or a quiet area. A peaceful environment is conducive to allowing daily stresses to fall away and the creative process to begin. Ikebana will change your view of the world. Art and beauty are found in many places, including unlikely and overlooked areas. Ikebana calls for the elements of your arrangement to be simple.  The focus of Ikebana is on the form rather than a bursting cornucopia of brilliantly colored masses of blossoms. The materials for Ikebana are abundant in nature. Flowers are often incorporated but in small numbers. Appropriate materials can be found anywhere in the natural world. A simple stem, gracefully curved and weathered to a warm color can make an outstanding beginning to an attractive and meaningful work of art. When you have completed your Ikebana creation, you may take it to your hotel to enjoy for the remainder of your visit to Osaka.
