Junko Miura is a license Ikebana Master from the Ikenobo-Seigetsu school, the oldest and most traditional lineage in Japan. She dedicated over a decade of formal training to learning Ikebana; however, she has studied the art form for as long as she can remember, since her mother was an Ikebana Master as well.

Using her training in the ancient discipline, as well as her other work experience as an international designer, Junko developed Jun Fusion— a more evolved and artistic form of flower arrangement born from her personal creative vision.

Junko’s award winning creations based on her Jun Fusion method, as well as her extensive training in the ancient, traditional approaches, have made her one of New York’s most sought after artists of flower arrangements.

Junko has the honour of offering her creations to the Permanent Mission of Japan to the United Nations, diplomatic ceremonies at the embassies, museums, galleries, high-end retail stores, and other public and private spaces. She also holds a teaching position at the New York Botanical Garden.

It was a great, relaxing experience. The class was small, which meant we received a lot of individual attention. I loved the arrangement I made and would love to take another class here.

Dear Junko, thank you for the private lesson and making this day a special birthday. This was our first Ikebana class, but definitely not our last. We are enjoying our arrangements everyday!

Our teacher was very patient and informative throughout the course! We had a great time learning about ikebana and loved the intimate and personable setting. The teacher definitely made us feel at home, and taking our ikebana home was icing on the cake!

This was our part of a delayed but not forgotten Valentine’s Day date day and surpassed my high hopes!

Junko is charming and informative. She taught us about facets of Japanese history and culture that birthed and have preserve the art of Ikebana.

Materials and equipment were all top notch and plentiful. We left with everything to recreate our beautiful arrangements at home.

I can’t recommend this course highly enough. I’ll take it again!

Great class for beginners. All supplies were provided. The instructions were easy to follow. Very pleasant instructor.

Yasmin Assef Jan 2024


I had the best beginner experience with Junko! I was fortunate enough to have one-on-one instruction, and I enjoyed every minute. The room was well-lit and the materials provided were beautiful. I had cherry blossom branches and calla lilies to work with. Junko took time to explain some of the history behind Ikebana and technique for Moribund style. I really loved putting together my first Ikebana arrangement and I look forward to coming back for more classes to learn about other styles. Junko is a patient and kind instructor and I am glad to have had her for a teacher!

Nikita Green Jan 2024


The class was amazing! She explained everything so well, from the history, the culture and how to create the flowers. Such an amazing, sweet, kindhearted teacher! All materials were provided to you and she even helped give you ideas in creating the flowers. Would highly recommend this class to anyone interested in learning and creating an Ikebana.

Me and my best friend had a great time with Junko and learned so much on the history and cultural significance of Ikebana. Junko was very encouraging and provided us with all the necessary's tools and flowers to make our first arrangements. She gave us vases and frog pins to take home and use for future arrangements.
