Sogetsu and Akane Teshigahara


Message from Akane Teshigahara

This summer, heavy rain has caused some serious damage in various regions in Japan. 
I strongly sympathize with those who have been affected by the disasters and very much hope that they will quickly regain their normal life.

The scorching hot days continue.
Particularly at times like this, let’s keep cool by arranging summer plants.
Colors which are gentle and pleasing to both the eyes and the heart, such as whites, blues, violets; vibrant greens; and the transparency of glass and water.
You can create ikebana works filled with these cooling charms to counteract this extremely hot summer.
