[2024] Sakura at Gardens by the Bay

It’s that time of the year to view sakura at Gardens by the Bay! For those of us in Singapore who are unable to visit Japan to experience it in person, this event is the next best thing. The theme for 2024 is Blossom into the night, and visitors can view it in daylight or after 7pm, the setting is perfect for Yozakura, or night sakura, when lanterns and light projections offer a different scenery for sakura appreciation.

In Japan, the Sakura festival is a celebration of Japan’s iconic cherry blossoms and the arrival of spring, a season of renewal and rebirth. As the sakura bloom, they symbolise the fleeting beauty of life and the importance of cherishing each moment. It is a reminder to pause, reflect, and appreciate the wonders of the natural world.

This year’s festival showcases more than 140 cherry blossom trees and features more than 40 varieties. Also part of the selection of blooms are  plum and peach blossom trees. Here are the highlights of Sakura: Blossom into the night.

One of the captivating aspects of the Sakura festival is the array of cultural performances and activities that pay homage to Japanese traditions. Visitors can witness mesmerising traditional dance performances, participate in tea ceremonies and craft workshops. These cultural experiences not only showcase the rich heritage of Japan but also foster a deeper appreciation for its customs and traditions.

Beyond its aesthetic appeal, the Sakura Festival serves as a platform for cultural exchange and friendship between Singapore and Japan. It brings together people from diverse backgrounds and fosters a sense of community and camaraderie.
