While we hope and pray for the possibility of travelling to Japan again, you’d still be able to get a piece of their beautiful Spring at Gardens by the Bay. Their annual Sakura floral display puts a vibrant pink hue from burgeoning Sakura trees in our metropolitan city.
As the most popular show on their calendar, the Gardens by the Bay Sakura display returns for its seventh consecutive year since its inception. From now – 03 Apr, visitors can delight in a local cherry blossom viewing experience, backed by a landscape of traditional torii gates, enchanting Japanese floral art by Ikebana International Singapore, and a display of koinobori on loan from the Japanese Association, Singapore.
Holders of the ComCare Long Term Assistance Scheme (aka the Public Assistance Scheme) card, Development Disability Registry card, Persons with Disability card, or CARA e-card, will continue to enjoy free entry to the Flower Dome, Cloud Forest, and Floral Fantasy.
The Instagram-worthy set-up includes dozens of colourful wagasa hanging from above, walls of haiku poems, traditional tea ceremony demonstrations, and cultural workshops like origami and Japanese flower arrangement.
In addition, five magical Unicornos from tokidoki (a Japanese inspired lifestyle brand) – Fubuki, Ichiyo, Haru & Harumi, Yoshino, and Sakurako – will be joining the ever-popular Sandy and Donutella to make their debut appearance at this year’s Sakura display.
Spot the colourful tokidoki characters grazing happily along the valleys and centre field as you take in the magical beauty of cherry blossoms.
