Sogetsu and Akane Teshigahara


Message from Akane Teshigahara

We have less than a month to go until this year ends. 

As the cold begins to bite, the illuminations decorating streets and buildings look more colorful, and people tend to hurry down the streets more. 

December rushes by so quickly.

Then we sometimes need to pause and reflect on what happened during the past year and restore our energy for the coming year.

In 2017, the Sogetsu School will mark the finale of its 90th anniversary.

I would like to make it the year when together with all of the Sogetsu Members, we  reach new heights of flower power in spreading the joy of creating ikebana throughout the world.
