This weekend I went to the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, which held Sakura Matsuri, a festival celebrating Japanese culture. In this festival, beautiful cherry blossoms that scatter the garden bloom with white and pink. It’s a gorgeous sight to behold. In the festival, there were many affairs such as Taiko Drumming, Cosplay Fashion Shows, Kabuki Dances, Samurai Sword Fighting, and much more. It was really insightful to see this amalgamation of events, diverse people, and beautiful greenery.
I was really disappointed as the Sakura Matsuri festival did not have a strong emphasis on Japanese cuisine. Japanese cuisine is regarded as one of the most delicious food offerings and you would think a huge event catering close to 40,000 people would have something more than a cold hotdog or an overpriced bento box that reminded me of airline food. Nevertheless, I had a great time.
There were so many pictures I took, and y’all know I’m about that life! I’ll keep it at a
minimum of 4 pictures. I suggest you all go to either the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens or the New York Botanical Gardens for your spring fix. There is only so many times you can enjoy those rooftop bars, you know what I mean?
