Ikebana is a disciplined form of art in which nature and humanity are brought together to create something aesthetically beautiful
The word Ikebana (生け花) means “to make flowers live”. Plants are beautiful as they are but, with the help of humankind, they can be arranged in an effective style to be more fully appreciated.
It is not just “put all together”, it is an expression in which other areas of the plant, such as its stems and leaves, need to be emphasize to give the right balance and harmony in the composition.
Ikebana is a traditional art originated in Japan and there are a lot of schools that offer courses to learn this beautiful art.
So if you have time on your visit to Japan, you should apply for one! It is really a wonderful and relaxing experience! ^^
