CHERRY BLOSSOM FESTIVAL
Included with Garden admission
Location: Upper Meadow
Cherry blossoms are the richly symbolic national flower of Japan. With a short blooming season, many believe Cherry Blossoms symbolize the fleeting beauty of life. Join us for a “hanami” or Cherry Blossom viewing as you stroll through the Garden, and stop by the Upper Meadow for live performances by Gardena Valley Japanese Cultural Institute (GVJCI) Tomo no Kai Chika’s Ukulele and Harriet’s Hula, Bando Hidesomi, Michael Murata, Prota Taiko, Southern California Naginata Federation and more.
Feel free to bring blankets and/or beach chairs, and food will be available for purchase from Okamoto Kitchen Food Truck.
