“Nageire” is not simply an ikebana technique of throwing in, but rather an arrangement of one’s inclination of mind.

In other words, it could be in any form, provided that it looks natural.

Reverence for nature is what we have basically.

Our emotion, enriched by nature’s blessings, drive us to arrange such a nageire.

Materials: Camelia, Moss Tree, Tosa Mizuki

Vessel: “Hakuyuh-bin” by Kishino Kan
