Ikebana exhibition by 32 Ikebana Iemotos and a bazaar with the cooperation of 40 embassies were organized.  The proceeds from the embassy bazaar were donated to the areas affected by natural disasters in Japan. In addition, for the first time in three years, we had an entertainment and a raffle.

For the raffle prizes, we would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to the companies, embassies, ikebana schools, and members who have provided us with many attractive prizes, including Okinawa pair accommodation tickets with air tickets.

This fair is a good opportunity to spread the beauty of Ikebana to the world as well as to know the culture of each country through the bazaar supported by the embassies.
