This was my first exhibition in this historic Japanese House and I had the honor to present my arrangement, along with other Sogetsu and Ohara arrangements in the main Reception Room. I am very thankful to my senei's instruction and have this chance to display my work for public viewing, and my thanks to my classmate Doris's help.
Below are the photos of Japanese garden and Ikebana exhibition:

The garden has been gradually expanded and renovated since 1957.

Continuous improvement to the recent beautiful garden.
