The Japan-America Society of Oregon (JASO) is presenting the Fourth Annual Cherry Blossom Festival in Portland’s beautiful Waterfront Park.

Japan has been celebrating the season and beauty of the delicate pink blossoms for centuries, with picnics under the blossoming trees accompanied by music and dance, known as hanami.  Cities across the U.S. have been inspired to carry on the tradition with major celebrations of their own and this year, during the month of March, we are celebrating our own Cherry Blossom Festival to celebrate the beautiful blossoms, the season of spring and the friendship between the United States and Japan, symbolized by the cherry trees along the waterfront side of the Japanese American Historical Plaza—-a gift to the City of Portland from the Japanese Grain Importers Association in 1989.

Authentic food and drink available from a number of fine vendors.

Join JASO for this fun event to celebrate the arrival of Spring:
