Japan spring fever sweeps Gardens by the Bay this March with the inaugural Sakura Matsuri, or known as Cherry Blossom Festival! Anchoring the fiesta is the annual cherry blossom floral display in Flower Dome, which will be complemented by Flower Dome programmes such as Japanese tea ceremony demonstrations, performing arts and a kimono parade. Fans of Japanese pop culture will be in for a treat at Anime Garden, an anime-themed weekend featuring free anisong concerts, celebrity cosplayer appearances and a Pikachu dance parade. Rounding off the festivities at the end of the month is Sakura Japan Fair featuring Japanese food and retail options, workshops and performances!
The beauty of cherry blossoms returns to Singapore with Flower Dome’s annual sakura floral display. Experience once more robust pink blooms of Prunus ‘Accolade, the romantic weeping form of Prunus ‘Snow Fountain’ and the classic white flowers of Prunus yeodensis. Stroll along cherry blossom tree-lined pathways and discover picturesque Japanese-themed elements like a tea house, rickshaw and torii gates. Lifelike resin dolls – an element of Japanese sub-culture and on loan from specialty collectors – are dressed in elegant kimonos and pose in meticulously-created miniature scenes of life admist sakura.
