While interviewing the demonstrators, we enjoyed gorgeous and unique ikebana.

 When we pass from the gate of the embassy to the entrance of the hall, we were able to see the large agaves and cacti, and while listening to the Mexican background music, we spent a wonderful time enjoying the atmosphere of Mexico. The attendants received agave syrup, as a souvenir, which is made from agave and good for health.

Gunjan Verma, Mrs. Yuko Kishida, the spouse of the Prime Minister, and Mrs. Yuko Hayashi, the spouse of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, we planted a Sakura tree called “Kanzan”. As a proof of the friendship between Japan and India, we hope that it will take root and grow into splendid flowers. After that, from 1:00 pm, the October monthly meeting was held at the Auditorium of the Embassy of India (Kudan Minami, Chiyoda-ku). The theme of the ikebana demonstration by Ms. Hakuyo Abiru, Assistant Professor of the Council of the Ohara Professors of Ohara school, was ‘Sparkling autumn breeze’, and a gorgeous and calm ikebana work was completed.
