Seattle Cherry Blossom & Japanese Cultural Festival
 
Explore and experience the cultural roots and contemporary influences of Japan through live performances, visual arts, hands-on activities, foods and games. This year's feast for the senses features Taiko drumming, artisan demonstrations, and a theatrical stage production, Otokichi about the first Japanese shipwreck survivors on US (Washington state) soil.
 
The Festival was founded 39 Years ago in appreciation of 1,000 cherry trees gifted to Seattle by Prime Minister Takeo Miki on behalf of the Japanese government in commemoration of the nation’s bicentennial. It is the first ethnic festival to be held at Seattle Center annually and the oldest in the Seattle Center Festál series. 
 
Presented by the Cherry Blossom & Japanese Cultural Festival Committee.
