Don’t forget about the Sakura Matsuri Cherry Blossom Festival in NYC this weekend! It’s a two-day celebration of Japanese culture that takes place at Brooklyn Botanic Garden, right when the cherry blossom trees are bloomin’.
During the festival last year, there was an art gallery, a flea market, and a tea room. The main stage performances included Taiko drumming and a samurai sword presentation. All of that translated into hours of exploration, and I still didn’t see everything — I missed the J-rock concert because I was too busy enjoying the bonsai tree exhibit at the other end of the garden!

When: Saturday, April 29, 2017, and Sunday, April 30, 2017, 10 am – 6 pm.
