We are pleased to introduce another new project, and we need your help!


Hanadayori: Ikebana by Request - Online Ikebana Exhibition


What kind of ikebana would you like to see? We will ask ikebana masters and practitioners around the world to make a special arrangement in response to your requests and exhibit them at our online exhibition.


We would like to receive many “requests” from you by 31 May 2021. 

Since Ikebana artists in Hanadayori are kindly opening their hearts for the wider community, we would like to pass them sincere as well as witty requests. We would like to hear your personal story behind your request.
