Ikebana in the Japanese Tokonoma (Alcove)

I took these Ikebana pictures in the different hotels I stayed in during my vacation to Kyushu (the southern part of Japan from 1/18 to1/22). The arrangements are very simple and elegant. Usually the arrangement is placed in a Japanese room called "Tokonoma" in which objects art, painting and flower arrangements are displayed.
