TFC Ikebana Exhibition in April 2023「花を通じての友好」いけばな展 2023

『Ikebana Exhibition 2023 “Friendship through Flowers”


Organized by Ikebana International Tokyo Founding Chapter / Embassy of the Republic of Angola

April 15th (Sat): Exhibition Previews: 16:00-19:00

April 16 (Sun): Opening Ceremony, Exhibition and Workshops: 10:00-16:30

Venue: Tokyo Metropolitan Theater Gallery One


This event was held with the aim of collaborating cultures of “Ikebana” and “Calligraphy”; the  traditional cultures that Japan can be proud of, and disseminating those Japanese cultures  to reach more people beyond national borders and generations.

We invited the spouses of ambassadors from various countries to participate in the event, and offered them the opportunity to experience the cultures of Ikebana. Their Ikebana arrangements were exhibited too with the flavor of their own countries, so their cultures are also expressed together.

At the opening ceremony, the spouse of the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mrs. Yuko Hayashi, the spouse of the Ambassador of Angola, the president of Ikebana International Headquarters, and the president of Tokyo Founding Chapter cut the ribbon.

After taking a commemorative photo with the ambassadors, their spouses, and Iemotos of ikebana, the TFC president gave an ikebana demonstration with the students of the Tokyo Metropolitan Setagaya General High School’s flower arrangement club members and the son of the Tunisian ambassador.

At the same time as the ikebana demonstration, a calligraphy performance was presented by a calligrapher, Mr. Katsuhiro Miike as well.

Ikebana workshops were organized by the Iemotos; Mr.Rishi Otsuka of the Koryu Katabami-kai and Mr. Shoei Fujisawa of Soshoryu school, along with the calligraphy workshop by Mr. Katsuhiro Miike, the calligrapher. Participants fully enjoyed and tried the arts seriously.

This ikebana exhibition was open to public, which broadly conveyed Japanese cultures that attracted many visitors to the venue. The event was videoed and will be available for viewers of the TFC website with the embedded YouTube channel. Please enjoy viewing the scenes.

The theme of Ikebana demonstration was done on the theme, ‘Hanagoromo’. In the first ikebana demonstration, cherry blossoms and camellias were beautifully arranged in the bamboo container that was widely placed on the stage, and the performance of Ange Musique was harmonized well.

A light and bright spring was beautifully produced with “Yose Ike” by the distinguished guests.

Ange Musique’s performance wrapped the venue elegantly, and they accepted the encore and everyone listened their music intently.

After the meeting, the attendees enjoyed the tea time with the hospitality of Mme. Xavier.
