Ikebana is the art of Japanese flower arrangement. Sogetsu Ikebana is a contemporary Ikebana art style that encourages creativity and artistic expression using the natural beauty of flowers, leaves, and branches, and unexpected, unconventional materials.

The themes of this exhibition is one of the essential elements of Ikebana – vases – by asking questions like “What is a vase?” or ” What is role should the vase play?

The exhibitors approach their vases and express their works in various ways from a different perspective.

Sogetsu Ikebana Iemoto in Japan explains, “The important thing is your reason for selecting that vase and how much feeling you point should be more respected”

The exhibition will feature traditional and unusual ikebana art displayed in themed “galleries” along the path winding around lakes, past the waterfall, and across the bridge throughout the five-acre garden.

Guests can stroll through the beautiful garden with Stunning Ikebana Arts displays.

The weekend offers many opportunities to further experience ikebana in the garden.
