The Sakura Matsuri Japanese Street Festival

This Japanese Street Festival began just four years after the Society's founding as a small "friends and family" bazaar. Today it is the largest one-day display of Japanese culture in the nation. Held each April as the climax of the National Cherry Blossom Festival, it stretches for six blocks through downtown Washington.
