Fusako Hoyrup

Mrs. Fusako “Seiga 清雅” Hoyrup, a principle teacher of the Wafu School of Ikebana and president of the school's California chapter, has devoted more than 50 years to the study and teaching of ikebana. She holds a Shukan Degree in Ikebana, which is the highest achievement level in the Wafu School and the equivalent of a Master's Degree. Mrs. Hoyrup has represented the Wafu School by giving lectures and demonstrations in Australia, Brazil, India, South Africa, and throughout the United States.

Mrs. Hoyrup has received many public commendations for the recognition of her uncompromising devotion to ikebana. In February 2011, Mrs. Hoyrup was presented the Fremont Union High School District's highest award, the "Friend of Education" award, in recognition of her expertise in teaching and sharing the Art of Ikebana in the community of the Fremont Union High School District's Adult & Community Education Program. In January 2010, Mrs. Hoyrup was voted into the Bunka Hall of Fame (Class of 2009) presented by the prestigious Japanese American Association of Northern California (JAANC).

In October 2015, the Consul General of Japan awarded Mrs. Hoyrup the prestigious Official Commendation for her long time contributions to the promotion of friendship between Japan and California through her ikebana activities.

2015 represents another milestone in Mrs. Hoyrup’s life as the California chapter celebrates its 45th Anniversary. The chapter and its students have been her life’s greatest joy, and the lives of others – teachers, students, friends, and associates – have in turn been deeply enriched by Mrs. Hoyrup’s contribution to the art of ikebana.
