Sakura Matsuri Festival @ Brooklyn Botanical Gardens May 2-3


Did you know that we can have a little slice of Japan right under our noses? That is if you live close to the Brooklyn Area of course. Every year  the Sakura Matsuri Cherry Blossom Festival is held in Brooklyn at the Botanical Gardens and it is 2 days filled of Japanese appreciation and fun. There will be concerts, sword fighting shows, drum shows, cosplay photo shoots and film screenings! Even J-Pop sensations Minami Kizuki and Ai Kawashima will be there!  The tickets go for $12 for adults, $6 for children and above and free for kids under 12! Sakura fun for the whole family that is not to pricey to boot! I am in, who is with me? More information on the event below and the full schedule of events can be found here


Sakura Matsuri, New York City’s “rite of spring,” marks its 28th year with over 50 events and performances celebratingJapanese culture and the blossoming of BBG’s 220 cherry trees. Visitors to the weekend-long Cherry Blossom Festival can enjoy a range of performances from traditional Japanese music and dance to concerts by some of Japan’s hottest J-pop stars, plus taiko drumming, an anime voice actor panel, bonsai pruning workshops, J-pop DJs, a traditional kimono show, and demonstrations and workshops for all ages.
