Discover the art of ikebana (flower arranging) in the virtual Kuno Tent.
The Kuno Tent is named after Canada’s first Japanese immigrant from Wakayama Prefecture, Gihei Kuno. The festival celebrates his pioneering legacy by highlighting the breadth of Japanese culture. Past festivals featured a variety of music and art performances in the Kuno Tent. In this video, local florist Stephen Kuo describes the difference between North American flower arrangements and ikebana (Japanese flower arrangement), and demonstrates how to create a piece using cherry blossom branches.
