Soft, sweet, pink and white hues stretched on as far as the eye could see during Sakura Sunday at Fairmount Park’s Horticulture Center in Philadelphia, Pa.

A Bit of Context…

Sakura Sunday, also known as the Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival of Greater Philadelphia, is an annual celebration of Japanese culture during the cherry blossom season.

The Japan America Society of Greater Philadelphia (JASPG) has strived to bring Japanese culture overseas to the city of brotherly love for over 25 years, according to the digital Sakura Sunday brochure.

This year, the festival served traditional Japanese food, hosted a myriad of performances, and vendors presented their goods from Apr 6th through the 14th.

Whether you’re a fan of anime, Japanese culture, or simply in need of a few more cherry blossom trees in your life, I highly recommend attending Sakura Sunday in Philadelphia next year.

In the meantime, head on over to P³ for the photographic highlights from the event!
