Chubu International Airport (Centrair)
4F Event Plaza

For three magical days next month at Nagoya’s CENTRAIR Airport, the 4th floor event plaza will be set ablaze with wood and flower in the largest, first of its kind, and most beautiful event ever held at the airport. On display will be TSUBAKI Art, ‘spring flowers’, displayed on natural woods in traditional flower arrangements, original ceramics crafted by local artisans, along with calligraphy and other beautiful things to see and be engulfed in. The art of flower arranging is a hugely popular art here in Japan and abroad, and if you’ve never experienced the beautiful arrangements a pro can put together, this is the event to experience.

The brainchild of the event is 54 year old Interior Designer/Architect Kazuyuki Sugiura. Born into a family of craftsmen, Mr. Sugiura started making his own designs as a high school student growing up in Handa City. As a designer Mr. Sugiura employs minimalism in crafting airy living spaces using nature, wood, light, and lots of open space. His Do Living Isseido studio, located in Handa City, shows off his elegant and sophisticated but simple designs in a natural setting. You can also see and purchase items designed by Mr. Sugiura at his store Do Living Isseido, located on the 6th floor in LA CHIC in the heart of Sakae.

Spring is around the corner even if it doesn’t feel like it outside, and this TSUBAKI ART display will at least warm your soul. With numerous restaurants, shops, and the prospect of travel in the air, Centrair is a wonderful place to spend an afternoon. The event will also feature a Q and A session on Ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arrangement, as well as live demonstrations of calligraphy and a live talk show. Bring someone you like, or someone who likes you, or someone you want to like you. Must see event.
