The history of Ikenobo is the history of ikebana. Ikebana began with Ikenobo and although over the past 500 years other schools have branched off from Ikenobo, Ikenobo is said to be the origin of ikebana. Ikenobo's history encompasses both the traditional and the modern, the two continually interacting to encourage new development in today's ikebana.
