Experience Japan 2023
April 30 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
You are invited to attend this year’s Experience Japan Hanami Festival on Sunday 30th April 2023, from 12–4pm. The festival is a free, family-friendly day out where you can enjoy and celebrate Japanese – Irish culture in the beautiful grounds of Farmleigh House, and witness performances, demonstrations, seminars, and traditions both old and in the making!
The festival takes its name from ‘Hanami’: the traditional Japanese custom of viewing flowers, especially cherry blossoms, to mark the arrival of Spring. Each year Experience Japan brings families and friends together in the beautiful setting of Farmleigh in the Phoenix Park, to enjoy music and dance performances, martial arts demonstrations, seminars, and a variety of traditional arts and crafts, and to discover Japanese culture, including lots of delicious Japanese food. Many festival-goers dress for the occasion: in traditional styles, following Japanese fashion subcultures, or in cosplay.
Festival team also is looking for volunteers who could help at the festival. Volunteers are invited to complete the application form to register as a volunteer for the 2023 festival. Any questions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
