Vol. 81: Ikebana Association Exhibition

It’s already March. Sunshine is getting stronger, but still cold days don’t abate. Please look after yourselves and wrap up well.

Today, I went to set up my work for the 53rd Ikebana Association Exhibition that is starting tomorrow at  Shinjuku Takashimaya Department Store.




To the sturdy driftwoods, colors were added with white Japanese quince and pink rhododendron.



The rhododendron with its large buds. I am looking forward to seeing how they will unfold in 6 days. 



Lastly by adding the camellia to increase volume...



I expressed the innocence of spring.


Works by more than 600 ikebanists from over 50 schools will be displayed.

Please enjoy the feats of ikebana from various schools.
