The Japanese believe that the cherry blossom symbolizes the beauty and frailty of life. New York City annually celebrates Japanese culture in spring when the cherry blossom trees are in full bloom. The Sakura Matsuri festival is a weekend-long event that takes place at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. Aside from admiring the beautiful white and pink cherry blossoms, the visitors can participate in various workshops and visit the puzzle plaza as well as enjoy samurai sword master performances, Japanese​ dances, taiko drumming, manga artists, and much much more. ​
