  • His and Her Ikebana Exhibit This May 25-26 at The Nova Gallery Manila
  • As a celebration of their 10th anniversary this year, the Misho Ryu Nakayama Bunpo kai Manila is launching their first Ikebana exhibit entitled His and Her Ikebana. 

    Happening on May 25 and 26 at the Nova Gallery Manila, the exhibit will feature a live Ikebana performance, a talk on the significance of Ikebana in today’s world, and an Ikebana trial.

    Ikebana is the traditional Japanese art of flower arrangement. Its name comes from the Japanese words ike which means “alive” or “arrange” and bana which means “flower.”

    【OKEIKO-1】 We had a lesson yesterday. All of us concentrated on practice for the exhibition with serious face. It was vibrant, exciting and quiet. OKEIKO means “lesson” in Japanese. Usually you can say it for Ikebana lesson and Tea ceremony lesson. 昨日は土曜のお稽古でした。 みんな真剣な表情でいけばな展に向けた練習に取り組みました。お稽古の時間は、静かな熱気で満ちています。 — #hisandherikebana #ikebana #manila #ikebanamanila #japanfoundation #japanfoundationmanila #flowers #flowerarrangement #Japanart #いけばな #花のある暮らし #海外でいけばな #華道 #未生流中山文甫会 #マニラ #マニラ生活 #マニライフ #マニラで習い事 #海外生活 #駐在妻 #マニラ留学 #マカティ #マカティライフ #フィリピン #フィリピン生活 #フィリピン駐在 #フィリピンライフ
