Ikebana in Madrid

On 16th October, we had the pleasure of attending a masterclass of Ikebana, given by Prof. Yasuhito Sasaki of the Ikenobo School of Kyoto, with the assistance of Rikako Yano of the Japan art centre, Arte y Cultura de Japón, at the residence of the Japanese Ambassador to Spain, H.E.Mr. Satoru Satoh. The event was part of the celebrations to mark the 550th year since the name Ikenobo first appeared in historic records, in the diary of Unzen Taigyoku, a zen monk at Tofukuji Temple in Kyoto, when commenting on a beautiful flower arrangement made by Senkei Ikenobo, priest of the Rokkakudo Temple.
