Mary Symons is an 'entertaining' speaker on modern day Japanese and Korean (North and South) lifestyle and culture.

She specialises in Ikebana (Japanese Floral Art) and the Tea Ceremony. 


Mary received her training in the UK and Japan and combines these skills now as as a qualified teacher and speaker. 
 
 An experienced cruise line presenter, she covers a wide range of topics on Asian lifestyle; showing an insight to these countries, still unknown to many Westerners. 
 
She has travelled extensively throughout Japan, Korea and the Far East to experience their way of life and culture and hosts teaching workshops and has taught the techniques of Ikebana to many people throughout the UK, Europe and the Middle East. 

She
 qualified with the Ohara School of Ikebana, one of the three most famous schools in Japan.

Separately, she runs a UK company, Kyoto Designs, specialising in the commercial supply of Japanese floral art. 

 
It is the unexpected and varied modern day lifestyle which countries such as Japan and Korea offer; something that many are then keen to experience first hand for themselves.
