This is a type of ikebana originated by the Third Headmaster Houn Ohara which is based on the highly decorative works of the Rimpa School, which flourished during the Edo Period. The goal is to capture in ikebana the decorative qualities of materials and the overall design effects typical of Rimpa works of art. To this end, the unique characteristics of plants are exaggerated or refined. For the most part, materials used are those found in Rimpa paintings. Mastery of the Rimpa Arrangement depends upon knowledge and study of the original works of the Rimpa artists.
