Keio Plaza Hotel Tokyo, one of Japan’s most prestigious international hotels located in Shinjuku, Tokyo, will host a special exhibition of “Ikebana” flower arrangement created by the renowned artist Hiroki Maeno from April 1 to 16, 2017. A large 2.7 by 5 meter flower arrangement lavishly adorned with some 200 beautiful “sakura” cherry blossom branches, which are one of the most symbolically important representatives of the Japanese aesthetic beauty during the spring, will be displayed in the third floor main lobby area for hotel guests to enjoy free of charge.

The artist Hiroki Maeno will also provide two Ikebana flower arrangement workshops held on April 6 from 4:00p.m. and 6:30p.m. in front of his beautiful arrangement. Guests will be able to view these workshops as they will be held in the lobby area.

About 75% of the guests staying at the Keio Plaza Hotel are overseas visitors from over 100 different countries. Therefore, our hotel has hosted exhibitions of Maeno’s Ikebana flower arrangements four times a year to show our guests the Japanese traditional sense of Japanese aesthetic beauty during each of the four seasons. These arrangements also demonstrate the artist Maeno’s abilities as a space producer. Furthermore, the upcoming exhibition will provide guests with a rare opportunity to enjoy the “sakura” cherry blossoms, which only remain in bloom for one to two weeks and are expected to have already fallen off the trees in the Tokyo region by the time that this exhibition is held.

He has been given a guild name “Flower Artisan Maeno” in recognition of his extreme talents and abilities, as well as “Flower Arrangement Architect” because of the beauty and grand scale of his flower arrangements. He has been asked to create flower arrangements for the APEC Energy Meeting held in Kyoto, the 1300 Year Anniversary of the Jinguji Temple, and numerous other events including television programs and plays.
