Monaco welcomes Japanese Ikebana

Ikenobo, the oldest and most prestigious school of Japanese ikebana, to visit Monaco and offer free ikebana demonstration of the traditional art form.

Ikebana flower arrangement is one of the representative aspects of Japanese traditional culture and was established by the Ikenobo more than 555 years ago. Like a poem or painting made with flowers, Ikenobo’s ikebana expresses both the beauty of flowers and the beauty of longing in our own hearts. Ikenobo’s spirit has continued to spread around the world, with local chapters in major cities and the hosting of exhibitions both across Japan and abroad. Ikenobo hopes to draw the world’s people together through their art.

As Honorary Consul of Iceland, Headmaster Designate Senko Ikenobo has continuously contributed to fostering international friendship, for example through a flower offering ceremony with wishes for world piece which was conducted in 2013 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. To encourage cultural relations between Monaco and Japan, which celebrated its 10th Anniversary of Diplomatic Relations last year, the Headmaster Designate will visit Monaco and present the traditional cultural art of Japan “ikebana” floral arrangements through an ikebana demonstration.

On Sunday June 10th, the Headmaster Designate will perform an ikebana demonstration at the Salon Bellevue in Café de Paris from 16:30 to 18:00. This special demonstration will be open and free to the Monaco public. Ikebana arrangements by Mrs. Senko Ikenobo, as well as Professor Yukei Miura of Ikenobo Central Training Institute, will also be on display starting June 10th in the lobby and entrance of Hotel Hermitage Monte Carlo.
