In 1927, when everybody believed that practicing ikebana meant following established forms, Sofu Teshigahara recognized ikebana as a creative art and founded the Sogetsu School.


Anyone can enjoy Sogetsu Ikebana:  anytime, anywhere, using any material. You can place a Sogetsu Ikebana arrangement at your door, in your living room or on your kitchen table. Sogetsu Ikebana can enhance a hotel lobby or banquet room, shop windows and huge public spaces. It will suit any kind of space and enrich its atmosphere.
