Ikebana art Tokyo, at Hotel New Otani Tokyo
I’m Nobu, I like traveling overseas and in Japan, visited 25 countries. I’ve got the license of the certificate English guide in Japan for 8 years.
I show you hidden Japan which you have never seen and heard of!
Hotel New Otani Tokyo entrance
I came across the beautiful Ikebana at the entrance of Hotel New Otani Tokyo.
It was the Sogetsu School style.
The Sogetsu School is one of the main schools of ikebana.
It began with an aversion to formalism and a desire for free expression that respects individuality.
And Sogetsu ikebana is not bound by “kata,” but is always new and free to reflect the personality of the individual.
Furthermore Sogetsu ikebana can be used anytime, anywhere, by anyone, and with any material.
Sogetsu Ikebana allows the ikebana artist to freely express his or her thoughts and feelings.
And it’s allowed to create flowers in his or her own way.
Sogetsu Ikebana, which has changed with the times.
It is not only enjoyed at home, but also brings beauty and peace of mind through botanical expression to all kinds of social spaces, such as window displays and stage art.
As you see here, the ikebana at the entrance of the Hotel New Otani Tokyo uses not only flowers.
But it uses also bamboo, paper, and other materials to create a dynamic expression.
In Japan the entrances of hotels, department stores, and public facilities are often decorated with Ikebana ( Japanese flower arrangement).
If you come to Japan, you may encounter ikebana.
I’m Nobu, one heart enjoy together!!!
