Ikebana In the Gardens - Learn the Ancient and Modern Art of Japanese Flower Arrangement
Through ikebana, also known as the flower way, we carefully observe how plants grow and learn to arrange ikebana. This ancient and modern art helps us make discoveries about nature, others, and ourselves.

She has studied ikebana since 2001 under Professor Emeritus Kimiko Gunji at the College of Art and Design, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

About Anderson Japanese Gardens
Anderson Japanese Gardens is a beautiful, outdoor setting that inspires the mind and energizes the soul.  Our twelve-acre landscape of streams, waterfalls, winding pathways, and koi-filled ponds has been rated one of North America’s highest quality Japanese gardens for more than a decade.

Anderson Japanese Gardens evolved from an individual’s vision to create a unique amenity for the Rockford region into an internationally renowned public garden. The founder’s principals of authentic design, first-class craftsmanship and world-class maintenance have led to the Gardens’ reputation as one of the finest Japanese gardens in the world. Today, the Garden operates as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations and attracts nearly 100,000 guests annually.

We are proud of the Gardens’ longstanding recognition as one of the highest quality Japanese gardens in the world. What motivates us, however, is the positive impact the Garden has on individuals. We have deliberately focused on broadening the Gardens’ appeal by transitioning it from a passive guest attraction to a highly-programmed regional amenity. We have found this transformation has opened the Garden and its restorative qualities to a much larger audience.
