Hoshun-in Ikebana and Shoji at Daitokuji Temple. Ikebana, meaning arranged flower is the Japanese art of flower arrangement also known as kado - the "way of flowers". More than simply putting poseys in a container, ikebana is a disciplined art form in which nature and humanity are brought together. Contrary to the idea of floral arrangement as a multicolored arrangement of blooms, ikebana emphasizes other areas of the plant, such as its stems and leaves, and draws emphasis towards shape and form.
