Sakura season returns to Gardens by the Bay with a touch of Hello Kitty kawaii!
Hello Kitty, the endearing Japanese international icon, will make her debut at Gardens by the Bay in this year’s Sakura Featuring Hello Kitty floral display. She will appear in various picturesque settings including a hanami (flower viewing) picnic amidst spring blossoms, a nodate (an outdoor tea ceremony), and a Japanese-style landscaped garden. Quintessential Japanese elements like torii gates and red-crowned cranes will also be featured in the floral display.
As safety continues to be a priority and thus in planning the Sakura floral display, Gardens by the Bay took into consideration safe distancing measures to spread out scenic spots and blossoms, allowing visitors space to maintain a distance from one another.
Cultural programmes such as traditional folk music and dance, taiko drum performances, Japanese tea demonstrations and ikebana workshops, organised in partnership with the Embassy of Japan in Singapore’s Japan Creative Centre, will be scaled down in accordance with prevailing safety guidelines, which cap the number of attendees who will need to pre-register for the programmes.
Sakura Featuring Hello Kitty floral display was launched by Ambassador of Japan to Singapore His Excellency Jun Yamazaki and Ambassador-at-Large at Singapore’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs Professor Tommy Koh.
