Exciting news for Japan Fans! A Cherry Blossom Party is being organized on Sunday, April 23rd, 2023, at Emmy van Lokhorststraat 40 in Utrecht, Netherlands. The event is being hosted by Kuratje and Midegain, and it promises to be an unforgettable experience for anyone interested in Japanese culture.
A Cherry Blossom Party, also known as Hanami, is a Japanese tradition that dates back many centuries. Hanami literally means “flower viewing,” and it typically involves gathering with friends and family under blooming cherry blossom trees to enjoy food, drinks, and the beautiful scenery. In Japan, the cherry blossom season is a much-anticipated event, and many people plan their outings and picnics around the blooming schedule of these beautiful flowers. The custom has spread beyond Japan, and now many countries around the world hold their own Cherry Blossom Parties, celebrating the arrival of spring and the beauty of nature.
One of the highlights of the event will be the opportunity to taste some delicious sake, a traditional Japanese alcoholic beverage made from fermented rice. Attendees can also indulge in Japanese snacks, amazake (a sweet, low-alcohol drink), and Japanese sweets prepared by Yuko san. And for those looking to try their hand at some traditional Japanese games, kendama (a skill toy), and kokeshi (wooden dolls) will also be available.
In addition to the food and drink offerings, visitors can also enjoy a beautiful exhibition of Japanese art, which will be on display at the venue.
For fans of Japanese culture, this Cherry Blossom Party in Utrecht is an event not to be missed. It’s a great opportunity to meet like-minded individuals and share your passion for all things Japanese. So if you’re in the Leidsche Rijn area on April 23rd, be sure to swing by Emmy van Lokhorststraat 40 in Utrecht, and join in the fun!
