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 hopes to draw the world’s people together through their art.

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.
