What is Ikebana?  Ikebana (生け花) is the Japanese art of flower arrangement that dates back to the 15th century.  Ikebana emphasizes natural beauty of flower materials including the stems and leaves as well as the shapes, lines, and forms.  It expresses the beauty of flower materials using an asymmetric composition, empty space, and the principle of minimalism.  Ikebana is also known as “kado” (華道) (the way of flowers), involving the spiritual practice of understanding nature, tranquility, harmony between all living things and oneself.
