Sogetsu and Akane Teshigahara


Message from Akane Teshigahara

It's the season when lush green leaves shine brightly.
It's also a time for us as ikebanists to recognize the life-force in plants growing day by day.
While seeing such greenery, I am thinking again what ikebana can do.
When you face a great difficulty, you may feel that a tiny flower is powerless.
But it may heal the broken hearts at one point and may deliver a little hope and courage to people who are devastated.
I will faithfully keep on asking what we can do now and in the future, believing in the power of flowers.
