It was a pleasure to once more attend and sell at the annual Cherry Blossom Day hosted in Salem, Oregon at the state Capital building. This growing Japanese festival is held on the lawn of the capital building, which is lined with many mature cherry blossom trees. This family friendly cultural event is ideal for all ages, and is growing. This year there was a full range of musical entertainment that included traditional musical instructions such as taiko, shamisen, and koto.
For two weeks we are out in the Portland, Oregon area. Portland is a wonderful area and there is a wealth of attractions. Our favorite place to visit in Portland is the Portland Japanese Gardens. This was our first time visiting the gardens in early spring. The Portland Japanese Gardens are a great venue to wear kimono to. #garden #Japanesegarden #Portland #PortlandOregon #oregon #PortlandJapaneseGardens
