Utsuwa owner Hiro Hayama ran a flower shop in Tokyo for a decade before opening his inviting San Francisco studio, where air plants and moss balls dangle from the ceiling. He frequently incorporates bonsai, air plants, and succulents into his work to create distinctive, ikebana-style bouquets. Alongside the fresh blooms, which are replenished three to four times a week with supplies from the San Francisco Flower Mart, the shop’s walls are lined with potted exotic plants and miniature gingko trees. Hayama is also known for custom terrariums, which he can whip up while you wait.
