"SAKURA MATSURI" 7th Festival of viewing sakura within the framework of the Festival "JAPANESE SPRING IN SAINT-PETERSBURG"
The festival in the Botanical Garden has been held since 2012 and acquaints Petersburgers with the Japanese national tradition of admiring flowers, which arose at the imperial court in the 3rd century. The sakura blossom, symbolizing the awakening of nature and spring renewal, is one of the main holidays of the Land of the Rising Sun, during which people come to the parks to have a small picnic under the blossoming trees and admire their extraordinary beauty. Guests of the festival in the Botanical Garden will be able to visit the Japanese Garden, walk along the greenhouse route, visit the exhibition of Japanese arts and crafts, watch the Kimono show, take part in master classes on taiko drumming and make their own crane out of paper, which, according to Japanese traditions, symbolizes health and longevity. Theater "Mimigrants" will present an exclusive program "Spring Cherry Magic", in which the theater artists will show a musical interactive fairy tale "Turnip-daikon" in Japanese style.
