The Botanical Garden held its annual Cherry Blossom Festival, celebrating the blooming of its many cherries and all things Japanese from taiko drumming, to dance, to bentos, to Butoh, and manga and animé with a fair amount of cosplay (see next posting). It was packed and all in attendance did a great job pretending they were Japanese by relentlessly photographing the blossoms and acquiring endless gigabytes of digital memories.
