Description

San Francisco is home to many immigrant neighborhoods that grace the city and bring wonderful diversity to the area. Japantown is no exception. Considered one of the largest cherry blossom celebrations within the United States, the festival highlights Japanese and Japanese American culture. Some of the cultural events at the festival include traditional music performances, martial arts demonstrations, arts and crafts booths and of course, Japanese cuisine booths, where the visitor can sample the flavors of Japan. The festival culminates in a Cherry Blossom Parade that features hundreds of dancers, samurai, floats and taiko drummers that bring Japanese culture, both new and old, alive.
