The ikebana class was fantastic. Very informative, fun and inspiring. I was able to make a beautiful ikebana arrangement. If you are looking for something special to do in Kyoto I highly recommend it.
I took part in the Ikebana class with three other participants. Kimi was very instructive and gave us some great history of how the art has evolved, what components make up the style, where to look for inspiration and how to incorporate Ikebana into your life. I had a great time in the class and thoroughly enjoyed Kimi's teaching style. As it was a rainy day in Kyoto, I ended up going to their tea ceremony class later that same day and had a brilliant time learning the history of the ceremony and drinking some delicious matcha and trying the sweets that go with it.
The highlight of my trip. One of the best experience I had in Japan. Highly Recommended!!!
