Greetings from TFC President

August 2017

Dear Members,

Having been elected as President of the Ikebana International Tokyo Founding Chapter, I, Misako Ishii, would like to fulfill the important duty with your support. I sincerely ask all of you your kind cooperation.

Among many events of the year, I.I. Fair will be held on Monday December 4 at Royal Park Hotel with Madam Rahel Zewdie Sleeuwagen, the spouse of Belgian Ambassador to Japan as Fair Chairperson. H.I.H. Princess Takamado will honor us with her presence.

We are now reconsidering the layout of the venue for visitors to enjoy shopping, entertainment, raffles and tea much more comfortably. The proceeds from the international booths will be donated to support those affected by the floods in Fukuoka Prefecture.

Preparation for the Fair is now being carried out steadily under the leadership of Fair Coordinator, Ms. Junko Katano.

TFC compensates its loss of Monthly Meetings with earnings from the Fair. From viewpoint of ticket sales, I would like to encourage strongly all of you to invite as many friends as possible to the Fair.
The important role of TFC is to spread the motto of I.I. ‘Friendship through flowers’. For this purpose, we are now considering how to better the planning and running of each event to get more members and guests to attend events.

As Japan being the host of the Olympic in 2020, the Japan Tourism Agency encourages people to plan ideas for introducing Japanese culture to tourists. I would like to make efforts to get people from abroad to enjoy Ikebana, Japanese traditional culture, through monthly meetings, which, I hope, will make our monthly meetings more active and enjoyable.

I am looking forward to seeing you at the September Monthly Meeting.

Misako Ishii
Ikebana International Tokyo Founding Chapter
