About the Ishida Ikebana Association
Founded in Nagoya in 1922, Ishida School Kado (traditional flower arrangement) is characterized by the elegant expressions and speed in which the flowers and trees are arranged.

His masterpiece focusing on environmental issues presented at the EXPO 2005 Aichi and 2010 COP 10 was well received. He received the FY 2013 Aichi Prefectural Art and Culture Encouragement Prize Culture Award.
