Ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arrangement, dates back over 550 years and is still practiced in modern day Japan. Ikebana is different from Western floral arrangement. Ikebana pays attention to the overall line and form of all plant material used and emphasizes minimalism and asymmetry. The design of the arrangement also uses as few stems as possible.
