Unlike the aristocrats of yesteryear, people these days make fun a key component of cherry blossom viewing. They drink and eat, making the tradition of blossom-viewing more like a picnic under the trees. People bring home-cooked meals, make barbecued foods, or buy take-out food to mark the occasion. As thousands of people flock to parks, securing the nicer places for picnics and parties in public spaces actually becomes competitive. Gorgeous flowers are the main attraction at the cherry blossom festivals, but there are a variety of traditional Japanese performances presented during these festivals. If you are one of those who enjoy a good view with elements of culture and fun, gear up! Calling all fans of Japanese pop culture, join Gardens By The Bay as The Meadow transforms into an anime wonderland in the last weekend of March with Sakura Matsuri: Anime Garden.
