Kokuga is a Lisbon based flower studio founded by Nathan Kunigami.
Half Brazilian and half Japanese, Nathan was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro. His relationship with Japanese culture begins at an early age, but it wouldn’t have a stronger influence on his life before his first trip to Japan in 2017. He has always had a strong affinity to flower arrangements, though, since his mother used to study and practice Ikebana. In 2017 he then decided to study Ikebana himself with a Japanese flower artist in Tokyo.
Kokuga is Nathan’s homage to his Japanese background since this is his original family name.
