“The Everyone’s Sogetsu Ikebana Exhibition” is a unique program that takes place on Facebook where anyone is able to participate regardless of their qualifications, as long as they learn Sogetsu Ikebana or love Sogetsu Ikebana .
For our 9th exhibition, we put the special theme, “”Ikebana at home!”
By the outbreak of OCID-19, our  normal life is disturbed and many of us are forced to stay home, to stay safe. Now it is time to turn our eyes to our own nest and have a try to make the best of it.
This time again, we are greatly looking forward to receiving applications from all around the world.

Any applications from children are also more than welcome.
You can try to win the Ikeru-chan Prize!

  • Qualification: Anyone
  •  Acceptance period: Sunday, April 19th, 2020 to Tuesday, June 30th, 2020 (Japan time)
  •  Fee: Free
