You can learn and discover the elegant floral arts of 'IKEBANA' in English and step into the traditional Japanese aesthetics at the cozy hotel. Enjoy creating your own floral artwork in a relaxed, friendly environment. You may make Ikebana when you go back to your country. After the lesson, you can be served a cup of tea or coffee. I will recommend the good places nearby for you. I have lived in Kyoto since I was born. I hope I could give you the best advice for your trip. 'You will get new values after Ikebana'. Flower arrangement is addition. But Ikebana is subtraction. So we need to be conscious of space between flowers and flowers. Of course, flowers are important. But also the spaces are very important in Ikebana. I want to tell you about aesthetics of subtraction. To be aware of space can be used for your life. Your aesthetic sense will improve. Let's have fun together ;) ※ I can change time for lesson maybe. So first text me if you want to do Ikebana :) ※ You can ask me whatever you need.
Hi! I'm Shusui Tanaka. Thank you so much for coming my page. Fortunately my grandmother was a wonderful Ikebana master. So I have practiced Ikebana for many years since I was 3 year old in Kyoto. I got a license of the master for teaching Ikebana 12 years ago. Ikebana is is really fun and interesting. I like the calm of the mind much when making the work. My aesthetic sense has improved by Ikebana. I will give you technique and you can make your Ikebana again. I am so proud of this art. I would like you to know the splendor of Ikebana. Let's enjoy together while your relaxing time in Kyoto :)
