What you'll do
First, guest will arrive to my school. I will serve tea and we will introduce each other and I will first demonstrate the Ikebana performance which is called Suibokuka-temae. Then, it's time for guest to experience ikebana. You can take back flowers and kenzan (flower tool to be used in Ikebana, needle holder) Suibokuka-temae is a way of Ikebana perfomance while you are coordinating Suibokuka, you will make the elegant movement just like you see during the tea ceremony and and the partner will be singing Waka (Japanese poem) It shows the beauty and elegance of Japan and we are receiving high evaluation globally. We are performing Suibokuka-temae as Ikebana demonstration in many countries in the world. About Suibokuka-temae, please visit the website: https://www.koryutoyokai.com/ Then it's time to wear kimono by kimono stylist Aiko. You can select color so please let us know. The kimono you will be wearing is authentic silk, best quality so I am sure you will satisfy with the quality. It will be lovely to take photos with kimono and flower. We can take your photo with your camera or phone and take you to nearest Shoin Shrine which is 2 minutes away, if the weather is good.
Since I was 2 years old, Rishun my grand mother who is the head master and founder of Koryu Toyokai and my mother Riho who became the second generation of the head master taught me Ikebana. Since I was University student, I joined Flower exbition. My Ikebana art was exhibited at Ikebana International world convention, Japan Ikebana Art exhibition. I have been invited to overseas countries such as Tunisia, Saudi Arabia, Moscow to perform Ikebana. https://www.rijo.jp/ Aiko has been professional Kimono stylist and her experience is listed on AirBnB as well.
