What you'll do

First, guest will arrive to my school. We will introduce each other and we will first demonstrate the Ikebana performance which is called Suibokuka-temae. It is very rare for head master to teach directly to guests. She taught prince and princess of Saudi Arabia and other executives of the world by request from Japanese government. After the performance, 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 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. To see more about Suibokuka-temae, please visit the website: https://www.koryutoyokai.com/ After the Ikebana experience, head master will perform green tea ceremony Omotesenke style to guests. Please enjoy Japanese tea ceremony, matcha green tea with Japanese sweets. It is premium experience by head master
