Sign-ups are open for Cool Takasaki: Ikebana event

Have you ever wanted to try your hand at Japanese flower arrangement? How about having your work put on display for the entire city to see?

We’re looking for 5 foreign residents to join us for the first Cool Takasaki event of 2023, a Japanese ikebana exhibition! Participants will learn about ikebana from talented instructors before trying their hand at making their own flower arrangement, which will then be included in an exhibition open to the public. Interpretation services will also be provided.


For those interested, the details are as follows:

【Date & Time】

For the flower arrangement experience: Sunday, March 12th, from 10:00 am; for the exhibition, the afternoon of March 12th until 4:00 pm on Sunday, March 13th*

*Participants will need to return and pick up their flower arrangement after the exhibition ends. Pick-up time is from 4:00 – 6:00 pm on March 13th.
