When the cherry blossoms begin to bloom in Kungsträdgården then you know spring is on its way. Stockholmers and tourists who are in town flock here to watch, enjoy and above all, to photograph both flowers and themselves.
The Cherry flower has its own day, “Cherry Flower day” (sakura matsuri), which is celebrated together with the Japanese Association. The day usually occur in mid-April, this year on 18 April. They have different activities that show different expressions of Japanese culture, food and performances on stage.
The program is usually published on the Japanese Association in Stockholm’s website. Go to the Japanese compound in Stockholm
