‘IKEBANA ( flower arrangement)’
I came across the IKEBANA exhibition at MEIJI shrine.
IKEBANA is a Japanese traditional art form of flower arrangement.
It’s said it started as the decorations for Buddhism alter when Buddhism imported to Japan, or from the ancient time we Japanese think that God decent to the standing plant ,had the special feeling and love to the plants .
There are over 300 IKEBANA schools in Japan, each of them have the different styles.
It’s thought as a good hobby for women, there are clubs of IKEBANA in junior high schools, high schools and universities.
Also many women before marriage practice IKEBANA to improve themselves.
The complete difference from western flower arrangement is western flower arrangement is a’ plus more plus more ‘ decoration way but IKEBANA is ‘remove more remove more ‘way to express the simple natural scenery.
If you’re in Japan you will have a chance to see them in hotels, department stores. public places check and enjoy them !
I’m Nobu, one heart enjoy together!!!
