日本文化体験会―いけばな/ One day Japanese Traditional Culture Experience:              -  Japanese flower arrangement -

原子力機構でサークルの活動紹介をする文化祭が開催(H27/1/13-16)されました。機構華道部は

1月14日(水)の退勤後、構内の一画で「生け花体験会」を開催しました。TICいけばな教室担当者は華道部員の皆さんと協力し合って、外国研究員の方々に生け花の手ほどきをしました。色々な組合せの花束とたくさんの花器の中から各自の好みで選んでもらうところから始まりました。そして、簡単に

基本の形を伝えましたが、一人ひとりの個性あふれる素敵な“生け花”が徐々に仕上がっていきました。一つでは物足りなかったのでしょう。さらに使われなかった花器全部に残った花や蠟梅の木々等で次々と作品を作り上げていく人たちが居て、いつまでも日本の伝統文化を楽しんでいました。

JAEA Culture session was held from January 13(Tue) to 16 (Fri) at lunch

break and after work. Members of the JAEA culture/sport circles

demonstrated the results of their daily practice.

As one day Japanese traditional culture experience, Japanese flower arrangement class

was held on Jan.14, after work.

At first, eight foreign participants watched a Japanese flower arrangement (Ikebana) demonstration by an instructor. Each participant then tried ikebana using

‘kenzan’ (a needlepoint holder for fixing flowers in a container). They realized that

the same flowers can be arranged quite differently depending on the flower container

or style of arrangement. Everyone expressed their ideas and feelings freely and was able to

create many unique ikebana displays. At the end of the class, a small exhibition presented

the flower arrangement works of all the participants.

Their works were on exhibit in the lobby of Advanced Science Research Center,

JAEA for the rest of culture session week.
