HÀ NỘI — Flower fans in Hà Nội will have the chance to enjoy thousands of exotic fresh flowers from Japan when an exhibition dedicated to the blooms opens in the city on Thursday, December 19.  

Entitled “Japan in Flowers”, the exhibition will showcase 2,200 examples of 50 different kinds of fresh flowers from the Land of the Rising Sun. The event is organised by the Hà Nội-based Metáphore Flower Boutique, in collaboration with Omori, a leading flower wholesaler in Japan. All the flowers will be imported to Việt Nam through auctions at Tokyo’s Ota Flower Market – the third largest of its kind in the world, which hosts the biggest flower auction in Japan.

As the event is taking place in the winter, it’s the organiser's intention to introduce the best of the season.

According to the event’s press release, guests will have the chance to get into “a fairyland created by multi-coloured flowers” or to have selfies with delicate and garden-fresh flowers.

A 200sq.m flower garden will be set up in front of the building where the exhibition is being held. The garden will feature flowers that are only available during the fall/winter season, such as Japanese Ranunculus Charlotte, Gloriosa Lily and Chrysanthemum Tom Pearce.

Exotic flowers will be presented at “Japan in Flowers”.

Guests can also join a workshop on flower arrangement conducted by French artist Glenn Arvor, who has 18 years of experience in his field.

The organiser expects that the event will also create an opportunity for local flower shops and flower traders who are looking for business co-operation especially during this festive season.

The free “Japan in Flowers” will take place from 9am until 8pm at Ballroom Press Club, 12 Lý Đạo Thành Street, Hà Nội. — VNS
