Keio Plaza Hotel Tokyo, one of Japan’s most prestigious international hotels located in Shinjuku, Tokyo, has hosted a special “Ikebana” flower arrangement exhibition in collaboration with renowned artist Hiroki Maeno from October 21 to November 5, 2017. Hiroki Maeno creates a majestic flower arrangement that measures 2.7 meters wide by 5 meters tall, using maple, chrysanthemums and other colorful flowers and plants to represent the red and yellow colors of the autumn leaves in Japan to welcome our guests.

Hiroki Maeno has created beautiful “Ikebana” flower arrangements for display in our hotel lobby timed with the arrival of each new season, four times a year. As part of this autumn’s exhibition, he will also hold a complimentary live “Ikebana Performance” to create a medium sized arrangement in front of his large arrangement from 5:00p.m. on October 30 (Monday), 2017.

The Keio Plaza Hotel Tokyo’s spacious lobby area with high ceilings allows for the large “Ikebana” flower arrangement to be beautifully displayed. Hiroki Maeno uses his skills as both an “Ikebana” flower arrangement artist and space designer to create an arrangement to beautifully accentuate our lobby space. His last arrangement was received with great admiration by the numerous guests visiting our hotel from around the world and has become a popular spot for commemorative pictures.

Also, the hotel has offered special 45 minute workshops to teach guests about “Ikebana” flower arrangement which is held on every other Thursday in a private room for JPY3,000 per participant. Instruction and commentary are provided by the artist Hiroki Maeno.
