Regular price £28.00

Mini wooden flower vase series (CHIISAKI-HANAIRE) from the city of Asahikawa, Hokkaido, Japan. These vases are all designed after 6 types of the classical Japanese flower vases inspired by the shapes of nature and everyday life in Japan.

KINEGATA: mallet

TSURUKUBI: crane neck

NATSUME: jujube

KINUTA: wooden block for beating cloths used for softening

UZUKUMARU: crouching

TOKURI: Japanese SAKE decanter

In the Japanese tradition of flower arrangement famously named as IKEBANA, flowers of the season are put in a specially selected vase in such a manner that brings out the beauty of the flowers themselves.


The designer, INOUE Hiroyuki, has created these tiny vases so that many people can gain a feel of what the Japanese art of flower arrangement is like.

Note that these vases are NOT water-proof, so please do not pour water in them.

Please find a beauty in the evanescence of flowers, withering to death. If you do not like frequently changing flowers, it may be a good idea to put berry- or nut-bearing plants.
