Cherry Blossom Festival

The Cherry Blossom & Japanese Cultural Festival celebrates Seattle’s friendship with Japan and Japan’s gift of 1000 cherry trees in 1976, by Japan’s former Prime Minister, Takeo Miki, in commemoration of America’s bicentennial and the long friendship between the people of Japan and Washington state. Today, the Festival is the largest and oldest of its kind in the Northwest. Hanami, cherry blossom viewing, is a reminder to celebrate life, and the pink petals carried on the breeze at the first Festival engendered that thought. People sat on the grass, eating from sack lunches, enjoying traditional Japanese art, dances, food and music performed free on a temporary stage.
