Ikebana, like tea ceremony, is more than art, but an integral part of Japanese culture. It is a discipline, taking years to master, yet practiced by millions who would attempt it. Unlike the more Western styles of floral design which focus more on color, ikebana focuses more on arrangement. Arrangements range from extremely minimal to grand designs like the one here designed by master Toshio Miura. Ikebana and tea ceremony often go hand-in-hand as ikebana arrangements are used as objects of reflection and conversation during a tea ceremony. Visitors to Japan who want to experience Ikebana can take introduction classes given in English.
