Say konnichiwa once again to Sakura Matsuri, the popular cherry blossom festival that makes a return to Gardens by the Bay this March!
Feel the crisp chill of early spring in the air at Flower Dome, and experience the ephemeral beauty of cherry blossoms at the Sakura Matsuri Floral Display. This year’s floral display showcases an elegant landscape more reminiscent than ever before of the Land of the Rising Sun. Take an idyllic stroll through a dramatic row of Torii gates ensconced beneath a breath-taking canopy of pink and white cherry blossoms, then cross a traditional red wooden bridge to peek through circular windows known as marumado, each perfectly framing a self-contained scene. There are more than 20 varieties of cherry blossoms to see!
Experience the intricacies of Japanese culture with Sakura Matsuri: Cultural Programmes, organised in collaboration with the Japan Creative Centre. Visitors get to enjoy a diverse array of activities that range from graceful tea ceremonies to exuberant dance performances like the Suzume Odori – the sparrow dance of spring.
The flavours of Japan is one of the highlights at Sakura Matsuri: Nippon Street, a specially-curated Japanese-themed fair held in collaboration with JTB Pte Ltd., which showcases the food, products and culture of the country.
In the last weekend of March, The Meadow transforms into an anime wonderland with Sakura Matsuri: Anime Garden, featuring celebrity cosplayers, popular anisong artistes and anime screenings.
