Flowering cherry blossoms and peach blossoms fill the Flower Dome in shades of pink and white, signalling the return of Sakura Matsuri to Gardens by the Bay. This is the fifth edition of the well-loved cherry blossom festival, which runs from now till 29 March 2020.
More than 500 cherry and peach blossoms at Sakura Matsuri
Witness the blossoming of spring at Sakura Matsuri – Tale of the Peach Boy, as the Flower Dome transforms into a Japanese springtime landscape. Follow the adventures of the legendary Momotaro, a boy born from a peach, and meet the three adorable warriors that fought alongside him. Amidst a quaint backdrop featuring Gassho-style farmhouses with their distinctive, steep thatched roofs, a Japanese tea house, and the quintessential torii gates, take in the ephemeral beauty of over 20 varieties of cherry and peach blossoms in this one-of-a-kind floral display.
This year’s floral display features over 500 cherry and peach blossom trees amidst a Japanese springtime landscape, including perennial favourites like the award-winning cherry blossom cultivar Prunus ‘Accolade’ with shell-pink blooms and the classic Prunus ‘Yedoensis’ with elegant white flowers.
Where Flowers Never Stop Blooming
In the Where Flowers Never Stop Blooming initiative, Gardens by the Bay stands with Singaporeans to remain resilient and positive during a difficult time. As a national garden, Gardens by the Bay remains open for residents to connect and find joy in nature, in the belief that people can revitalise mind, body and soul amidst green open spaces. In a time where many people are deferring travel, the Gardens also brings a little bit of the world to Singapore.
Beginning today until March 15, Gardens by the Bay is offering 500 Singapore residents whose trips to Japan during sakura season have been disrupted by COVID-19 the chance to visit Flower Dome for free during the Sakura Matsuri floral display. People can share what their disrupted Japan trip meant to them through the Gardens’ website to stand a chance to receive tickets to Flower Dome.
The most compelling reason gets a bonus “trip to Japan” right here in Singapore, which includes Flower Dome tickets to enjoy cherry blossoms, and Pan Pacific Singapore’s Great Fun-mily Escapade package that comes with a weekend staycation for two adults and two children, with a brunch at Keyaki Japanese restaurant thrown in as well.
In a further collaboration with Pan Pacific Singapore, visitors can receive 30 percent off their bill (until 30 June 2020) at the hotel’s Edge, Hai Tien Lo and Keyaki restaurants if they present Gardens by the Bay’s conservatory ticket.
