Sakura is back at Gardens by the bay! This year’s floral display highlights the beauty of cherry blossoms through different interpretations, from using the cherry blossom in floral art, to the more traditional representation of cherry blossom trees.
Inspired by the theme of travel across scenic spots in Japan, visitors are taken on a sight-seeing trip through a changing landscape that features scenes such as a lake where animals associated with Japan like deer and cranes gather, as well as toy trains making their way across picturesque scenes dotted with cherry blossoms, torii gates and iconic Japanese landmarks such as Mount Fuji.
Spot several first-generation Pokémon interspersed throughout the floral display.
Hanami literally means “flower viewing” supposedly began in the Nara Period (710 to 794) with ume or plum blossoms, but moved on to cherry blossoms by the Heian period (794 to 1185). Since then, hanami has been synonymous with sakura.
Cherry blossom season symbolises a time of renewal, bringing hope and new dreams at the beginning of the Japanese calendar year.
