Sogetsu and Akane Teshigahara


Message from Akane Teshigahara

The Sogetsu School, which was founded by Sofu Teshigahara in the pursuit of free and creative ikebana, has reached its 90th anniversary this spring.

I would like to express my heartfelt appreciation to all the people who have supported the journey of Sogetsu so far.

Sogetsu Ikebana has explored ikebana styles most suitable for each moment, place, and environment while always facing the era.

What can ikebana do now for the future?

What can the power of flowers bring to our present society, filled with various difficulties?

We, the Sogetsu School, will continue to deliver the joy and comfort that flowers can provide to people all around the world, not limited to Japan, believing in the affluent potentialities of flowers.
