Ikebana is the art of flower arranging.
It’s still a popular past-time and some high schools even have ikebana clubs.
Doing ikebana isn’t a laugh though – you’re supposed to be calm, quiet and almost meditative about appreciating the flowers and things people often miss during their busy everyday lives.
Viewing ikebana exhibitions is also a relaxing way to spend an afternoon.
‘生け花’ itself actually means ‘living flowers’.
