TOKYO, Sep. 28 — Japan Flower Growers Association (JFGA) met on September 27, 2017, to exchange ideas and opinions for promoting the use of Japanese flowers at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics Games among its nine member industrial groups.
The association has set up three projects under the following three themes: 1) bouquets for Olympic medalists, 2) bouquets for Paralympics medalists and 3) decorations for the entire event. From now on, it’s going to summarize the ideas and the promotional plans based on the three topics.
One of the attendees at the meeting said, “We appreciate having an early prospect to make sure that we provide enough quantity of good flowers in hot summer in Tokyo.” Some others proposed the use of flowers from the quake-hit areas in Eastern part of Japan as a symbol of the recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake.
“Our goal is to show the world that Japan can provide excellent flowers even in hot summer. By doing so, we want to let people all over the world know that Japan is a flower-rich country,” Nobuo Isomura, chairman of the association, said after the meeting.
