It’s hanami season in Sweden!


Hanami in Sweden

The cherry trees are currently in bloom in Stockholm, Sweden – it’s hanami season! To view them you have to hurry up, because they dont bloom for very long. If you are in the Stockholm area at the moment, make sure to visit Kungsträdgården, because this is a beautiful sight that you don’t want to miss.


Cherry Flower Day / Sakura Matsuri

Like previous years, there will be a Cherry Flower Day celebration in Stockhom this year as well. It will take place on April 26 in Kungsträdgården. The Japanese Society (Japanska Föreningen) is arranging it and there will be a drum show, cosplay, lolita fashion show, dance shows and lots more. Last year was pretty awesome, our report from it can be found here: Hanami in Stockholm
