Ikebana (flower arrangement) is world-renowned as an ancient Japanese art form.
Its history began at Shiyunsan Choboji Temple (also known as "Rokkakudo") in Nakagyo-ku, Kyoto.
Ikenobo, the oldest school of ikebana in Japan, continues to develop today as the origin of all ikebana styles.
Today, many schools have produced a variety of styles, and the art is enjoyed by both men and women alike.
In Kyoto, you can also find rare floral materials that cannot be found in other parts of Japan.
If you are wondering whether or not to learn ikebana for a long time to come, or if you just want to try it for a short while, you can take a class at Sakura Ikebana School.
If so, please come to Sakura Ikebana School for a trial lesson.
Please experience ikebana with flowers that reflect the season.
You can cut the flowers used in the lesson into small pieces and take them home with you./p>

If you put it in a glass at a hotel or inn and look at it during your trip, I think you will be able to enjoy the memories of your fun trip a little more.
Would you like to experience ikebana for the first time in a calm space at the teacher's home?
In the hands-on workshop, even beginners will be carefully instructed according to their level.
You can participate empty-handed, and anyone can easily start regardless of gender, age, or nationality.
At this time of year, you can even practice ikebana with a cypress fan.
Hiougi belongs to the Iridaceae family and is characterized by leaves that look like an open fan.
In ancient times, cypress fans were used to ward off evil spirits, so cypress fans have become an indispensable part of the Gion Festival, which was started to appease the wrath of vengeful spirits.
This flower, which blooms in summer with orange and yellow flowers, was often decorated in front of the eaves of private houses as one of the festivals, but it seems that it has become rare these days.
In Kyoto Prefecture, the Hioki district of Miyazu City is said to be the production area for cypress fans, and more than 10,000 of them are shipped each year.
