2014 Seishincho Autumn Festival

2014 Seishincho Autumn Festival

It’s the time of the year when people here in Japan start to say goodbye to the summer heat and welcome the cool breeze of autumn. Although it is a bit early, Momiji (Japanese maple) leaves begin to change its color. Likewise, Ginko trees are getting brighter everyday.

Welcoming autumn is also something we look forward here in Edogawa.  Especially because of the annual autumn festival held in Seishincho Community Hall. Every year, different clubs and groups have their chance to show and share their works through exhibition and talent presentation. And since our Ikebana class is one of these groups, we were able to share our flower arrangements to our family, friends and the community.

This exhibition served as another milestone for me because my sensei gave me a challenge of choosing my own flowers and materials. With this, I was able to plan more of my design.
