On a recent visit to the Imperial Palace, in Kyoto, we saw several large examples of Japanese flower arrangement.
Both of the pieces were in open arcades within the Palace.
They feature flowers and plants seasonally appropriate: autumn in all its glory.
The arrangement at bottom left is from Ninnaji Temple. This is noted on the small wooden plaque at the base of the arrangement.
They are wild but controlled, and colorful in a subdued way.
