CNBC covered my Ikebana experience for tourists. Here is the video.

I’m doing 2 kinds of Ikebana experiences especially for tourists who are from other countries through Airbnb.

Every time I meet  new guests, I am inspired by diversified backgrounds and culture they have. I can get enough of interaction with the world!
