What better way to fully experience the historic city of Kyoto than by taking the time to try ikebana ('living flowers'), the Japanese art of flower arrangement? Create a fantastic work of art after acquiring the basic concepts and fundamental skills, then see your personal experiences, emotions and thoughts take shape through the visual art form of flowers.

Also known as kado ('way of flowers'), and one of Japan's three classical arts of refinement, flower arrangement is often falsely regarded as a female art form. However, ikebana was traditionally a required skill for well-educated men, such as samurai or monks.

Learning ikebana allows you to understand the Japanese view of nature, a crucial step in appreciating the unique aesthetics of Japanese culture. Empty your mind, clear your heart and express the season and your feelings through the subtle and graceful language of flowers.
