The Japanese art of flower arranging

One of the wonderful culture of Japan is the flower arrangements... the Ikebana-- meaning living flowers. My friend Liza and I had this chance to visit the Shizuoka Ikebana Festival held in Isetan and it's absolutely incredible, gourgeous and elegant! Thanks to the compliment ticket from SIFA staff... we did appreciate the beautiful flowers and different styles of Ikebana!
