YOUR HOST

Eiko HAMASAKI

My name is Eiko Hamazaki and I believe that through the art of Ikebana or “flower arranging” there is a great potential to help society. My specialty is psychology and my passion is ikebana, so I looked for a way to merge these two things and came up with Ikebana therapy! Some people feel excluded from society and withdraw from school or society at large. It is through Ikebana that I would like to try to help reunite these people with others. My dream is that one day society will be united and at peace. I would be so happy if my love of ikebana and uniting people could help to build a better society for tomorrow.
