The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism has agreed to organize a Japanese cherry blossom festival 2015 on April 11th-12th at the Thang Long royal citadel in Ha Noi.
During the festival, Yosakoi traditional dance, cosplay performances, martial arts performances, and an introduction to special Japanese food will be held.
Apart from the usual Sakura decoration, there will be interesting activities such as Sakura planting, exhibition, and an area introducing Sakura and photography.
The Japanese cherry blossom festival was first held in 2007. Each year, the festival attracts more than 100,000 visitors. This is an outstanding cultural activity in Viet Nam to introduce Japanese culture to visitors.
Last year, the festival took place at the Viet Nam Exhibition and Fair Centre on Giang Vo Street, Ha Noi in March. Organised by the Japan-Viet Nam Cultural Association Foundation, fresh cherry blossoms were imported from Japan and displayed at the festival.
