Ikebana Master Ohara Hiroki
Ohara Hiroki is the fifth headmaster of the Ohara School of Ikebana, one of the three major ikebana schools. Ikebana is the Japanese art of arranging seasonal flowers and plants. Compared to its western counterpart, ikebana has been called “the aesthetic of subtraction” for its emphasis on empty spaces. Ohara, who was named headmaster at age six, aims to take the tradition of Japanese flower arrangements forward by incorporating cutting-edge technologies.
