Most people think of Ikebana as simply a Japanese style of arranging flowers. But Ikebana is much more than that. Ikebana is a powerful means of self-expression and it develops our ability to see in new ways. We present “Ikebana Experience for tourists” to share this aesthetic art and already welcomed wonderful guests from all over the world, more than 50 countries.
For more detail, please go to the booking page. Many photos and explanations make it easier to know each course.

We will create a customized experience just for you. Classes can be held on location or in our classrooms for groups of all sizes. Please feel free to inquire us by email.
The merit of this course is that you can mingle with other Ikebana practitioner and appreciate each art works after your creation. We are afraid that the number who can participate in this course is limited unfortunately as we have regular students there.
If you are serious to explore Ikebana world, we strongly recommend this course led by Ikebana artist, Mika Otani. You are welcomed to her home and learn the spirit of Ikebana intensively.
As for potential students who live in TOKYO, there are regular lessons.
