The Japan Flower Academy brings forward the Ikebana Ikenobo teaching all over Japan, Thailand, China and Paris. The President of the School is Madame Chapeau Yasuko Manako.
Paola Scoccimarro, accompanied by Fiorella Gaggero, travelled all around Japan by plane and by the Shinkansen bullet train, jumping from demonstration to demonstration.
Ikenobo Maître Rumiko Manako’s welcome was extremely warm and made them feel at home. They were asked to outline a picture of the Italian Flower Arranging over the centuries.
Paola and Fiorella illustrated its History, starting from Rome up to the present days, through slide screen projection and English commentary translated into Japanese.
During each of the three Demonstrations they executed ten flower arrangements live, ranging over all the styles: period, classical and modern.
