San Francisco Cherry Blossom Festival



The Cherry Blossom Festival began in 1912 when Tokyo Mayor Yukio Ozaki gave the gift of 3,000 cherry trees to our nation’s capital. Ever since then, the annual event has spread beyond Washington D.C. and continued to serve as a celebration of the friendship between Japan and the United States. San Francisco’s Cherry Blossom festival is second in size only to the National fest — attracting over 200,000 spectators and participants — and boasts an abundance of activities and ceremonies.

This weekend marks the first round of the event, but push those possible lingering feelings of FOMO aside because the number of offerings will keep you occupied. From the Kyoto Arts and Crafts, to hula dancing to the Hello Kitty Cafe Truck, there’s something for everyone. And that’s right — Hello Kitty Food Truck. Plan your driving situation ahead of time, use public transit, or get comfortable with the idea of a long walk as many streets are closed to accommodate all the people and fun. Lastly, take advantage of this unique event! San Francisco’s Japantown is one of only three remaining Japantowns in the country, making it the prime celebration spot.

If You Go:

When: Saturday, April 8 and Sunday, April 9 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Where: Japan Center, 1610 Geary Blvd., San Francisco, CA 94115
