Photos from the RIHGA Royal Hotel Osaka class リーガロイヤルホテル大阪のクラス

Here are some photos from the class held in April at the Rihga Royal Hotel Osaka. This class is held regularly once a month. The class is rather new and not known much, and has no foreign students yet. But there are many guests from abroad staying at the hotel. When the class becomes better known, I hope they won’t miss the advantage of having an experience of Japanese culture at their hotel. Students can enjoy their arrangements in the hotel rooms while staying there if they want. The class is given mostly in English and Japanese is used only when it is necessary.
大阪リーガロイヤルホテルのクラスの写真をお見せします。このクラスは月1回定期講座です。開講したばかりで、よくは知られていないので、海外からの生徒さんはまだみえていません。しかし、このホテルには大勢の外国人ゲストが出入りしていますので、クラスの存在を知られたら、居ながらにして日本文化を学べる手軽さを見逃されないことでしょう。 ご希望になれば、ご自分の作品を滞在中、お部屋に飾って楽しむこともおできになります。 クラスは英語と日本語で進行します。


The class starts with a presentation on things Japanese. Then a demonstration is made to show how to make an ikebana arrangement with the materials of the day. After the student finishes arranging, the arrangement is further modified by the instructor to make the materials appear more beautiful. This is how the student learns the skills of ikebana.

Guests from the USA in Osaka class アメリカからのお客様 

In April 2016, we had three guests from the US at TYA Osaka class. I learned that she was visiting her son living in Osaka. She runs a beauty salon and has sense of finding beauty. No wonder she made a beautiful arrangement in spite of the first experience of ikebana.
2016年4月 大阪TYAクラスにアメリカからの3名のゲストをお迎えしました。彼女は大阪に住んでいる息子さんを訪ねていらっしゃったのだそうです。 アメリカでは美容院を経営されているとのこと。初めてだと言うのにきれいないけばな作品を作られるのも、もっともです。



See her pouch on her shoulder. You can tell she is from America:)

Sakura Sakura Sakura...

After the Hanami Picnic as you see in my previous article to this, we went to the ikebana regular class. Everybody made a fantastic arrangement with enhanced feeling probably given from the sakura fairy at the picnic.

Hanami Pinic  お花見ピクニック

On a beatutiful Thursday morning, we enjoyed Hanami Picnic at a park in Ushita, Hiroshima. It was the morning after and before rainy weathers, and the temperature, sunshine and breeze were perfect for us. I wanted to keep chatting and laughing for the whole day.
