Cherry Blossom Festival- Sakura Matsuri, began while I was in Japan and is a telltale sign of Spring bloom, renewal and beauty.
The parks are covered with large blue tarps filled with friends, family, beer and bbq.
Many wear traditional kimonos to the festivals.
The festival is also celebrated in Washington D.C.- the cherry blossoms a gift from Japan.
