Beauty as simplicity of form is a key concept of Japanese Noh theater and the tea ceremony.
Japanese flower arrangement or ikebana demonstrates this simplicity in the arrangement of the cut flowers.
If you are looking for an arrangement with a Japanese and European flair, we highly recommend a visit to Takumi Nakaya's flower shop, located near Nagoya's Hilton Hotel.
His unique style and years of experience give simplicity a whole new look.
