The Sogetsu School Osaka, which had been initiated by the former Iemoto Hiroshi in 1982 and has been beloved by many Sogetsu ikebanists for nearly 40 years, will become “Sogetsu WEST” in KYOTO.

Entrance to Sogetsu WEST on the 1st floor of Hotel Emion Kyoto.

Sogetsu WEST will  bring  the joy of ikebana to Sogetsu members in west Japan as well as visitors who have never experienced Ikebana.

As a future-oriented place to learn Sogetsu Ikebana, we will explore the new possibilities of Ikebana without being restricted by conventional ideas, whilst respecting the heritage cultivated through the history of the Sogetsu School Osaka.

Please visit this place to experience ikebana in a  new way!

For the logo, two different fonts are used: "SOGETSU" represents our tradition and "WEST" introduces an image of the new Sogetsu advances.
Please join the new chapter in the history of Sogetsu.
