At the Sakura Ikenobo Ikebana Class, we hold the "Ikenobo Ikebana Class" for practicing Ikenobo Ikebana and the "Ikebana Experience Class" for you to feel closer to Ikebana.
We offer a variety of courses that are easy for busy people to take.
Classes are taught according to each student's individuality and level.
Even beginners can enjoy practicing from the basics.
Of course, you can also learn elegant classical ikebana and modern ikebana.
Please take the course at your own pace.
Foreigners are also very welcome.
This is an Ikenobo Ikebana class taught directly by an Ikenobo Ikebana professor. I want to gain knowledge of flowers! Get your exemption! Treat yourself with flowers!
Why don't you feel the season through dialogue with flowers? Foreigners are also very welcome. Lessons are conducted via Skype or Zoom.
Touching the seasons, talking to nature, and experiencing valuable time as a child will be treasures for the rest of your life.
In Kyoto, flower materials such as branches and leaves that cannot be seen at flower shops in other areas are also sold.
Even if you have a high threshold for trial lessons, you can come to Sakura Ikenobo Ikebana Class just once without hesitation.
This is your chance to try it out and see if it's for your child or yourself! In the Sakura Ikenobo Ikebana class tour, we will give you a lesson on how to arrange flowers that are typical of Kyoto.
Experience ikebana using seasonal Japanese flowers. The flower materials used in the lesson can be cut into short pieces and taken home.
Ikebana is one of Japan's traditional cultures, an art that allows you to come into direct contact with nature. Why don't you feel the season through dialogue with flowers?
From elementary and junior high school students to seniors, we have a relaxing and relaxing time with seasonal flowers.
I teach ikebana, flower arrangement, tea ceremony, koto music, and cooking at 'SAKURA Experience Japanese Culture' in Nakagyo-ku, Kyoto. We have introduced various Japanese cultural experiences to about 4000 customers so far (as of 2020). Ikebana is one of the traditional arts of Japan. It not only allows you to discover the unique beauty of Japan but also provides a tranquil environment surrounded by flowers to relax your mind.While you can find many ikebana tutorials on platforms like YouTube nowadays, I believe that initially, it can be challenging to try ikebana by yourself. I invite you to visit us in person and immerse yourself in the experience. Let's learn Japanese culture together in enjoyable lessons! We offer English instruction, so please feel free to visit us when you have guests from overseas.

The name "SAKURA" is derived from the fact that Ihei Ito, the ancestor of our company president, Manabu Ito, who lived in Somei, Komagome-mura, Toshima-ku, was the developer of somei-yoshino in the Edo period. We are here.
There is also a story that Tokugawa Yoshimune, the shogun at that time, went to Kirishimaya Ihei himself to buy azaleas and wisterias, and also enjoyed tea.
We opened "SAKURA" because we wanted to offer authentic Japanese culture to tourists in Kyoto, the tourist city that Japan is proud of.
Not only can you come into contact with Japanese culture superficially, but regardless of nationality, gender, age, experience or not
We hope that everyone will enjoy the experience and feel wonderful memories and happy times.
