Like a spring flower arrangement exhibition, a wide space will be used to display numerous flower designs using fresh flowers.
Premium Flowers will be exhibiting one artwork for the exhibition. Although my work has not been completed yet, it has been practiced and prototyped many times. This year's exhibition may not be as unusual as last year's, but I will do our best, so please look forward to it!

The lunch menu seems to be substantial. However, it seems to be limited in quantity, so they recommend making a phone reservation in advance if you plan to go.

Information on the "Yokamon Hiroba"

Fukuoka Prefecture is the third largest producer of flowers in Japan.
There are 47 prefectures in Japan.
Fukuoka Prefecture is the third largest producer of flowers in Japan. Many flowers are grown in cities such as Itoshima, Kasuya, and Yame. In the suburbs, you can see many greenhouses.
Fukuoka Prefecture produces a lot of flowers, and it is clear that it is blessed because the quality of flowers from other prefectures may not be good during the summer. Fukuoka is famous for its fresh vegetables, but its flowers are also very fresh, and its fish is also incredibly fresh. I thought again that it is a wonderful land.
There are many high-quality roses, and many flowers that have won awards, so going to the flower market is always exciting.
You can also see the works of the head office of the Manaco Flower Academy in both the first and second semesters. Please take a look, as my favorite Rumi Manako, the academy's director, will also be exhibiting.
Here are the works for 2022
Last year was the first flower exhibition at the prefectural office. I have exhibited at places such as the Fukuoka NIshitetsu Solaria Hotel, Hakata Hankyu, Osaka Imperial Hotel, and Fukuoka Asian Art Museum.
Exhibitions at contests include Huis Ten Bosch and the Orchid Exhibition at Fukuoka Dome. There were also many small exhibitions of works.
The flower exhibition featuring fresh flowers has a wonderful fragrance and is a luxurious space. The exhibition is only open for two days each. Please come and visit.
