Ikenobo Ikebana Society information
The largest, oldest society outside Japan for ikebana (the Japanese art of flower-arranging) has the displays to prove it: a curly willow tickling a narcissus in an abstract jiyubana (freestyle) arrangement, or traditional seven-part rikka landscape featuring pine and iris. Even shoppers hell-bent on iron teapots and maneki neko (waving kitty) figurines can't resist looking.
