The Japanese Friendship Garden (JFG) is proud to announce
that Cherry Blossom Week (formerly known as Cherry Blossom Festival) returns to welcome the
spring season! The celebration will continue to combine both cultural education with family fun
and will offer various special daily programs. From kendo demonstrations to week-long vendors,
there's something for everyone to enjoy — all special daily programs are included with JFG
admission! Visitors will be able to stroll the upper and lower areas of JFG filled with various
features (koi ponds, bonsai, colorful florae) and enjoy the Japanese custom of hanami -
appreciating the beauty of cherry blossom flowers.
During the weekend, JFG blooms into a full festival with a children’s arts and crafts area, an
adults-only area where different craft beers and sake can be enjoyed, a tea and dessert garden
featuring brews and blends from Café Moto, and to top the week off, there will be live
performances during the weekend with over 40 different food and merchant vendors local to San
Diego and visiting from out of town!
