Brooklyn Botanical Garden celebrates Japanese culture

March 20, 2013 by  

Sakura Matsuri is a celebration of the Japanese culture, and will be presented by the Brooklyn Botanical Garden in just over a month’s time.

There will be plenty of activities in which visitors can take part over the two days, including such offerings as Taiko drummers, tea ceremonies, Samurai sword fights, bonsai and ikebana demonstrations, performances of Japanese dances such as Nihon Buyo, a Cosplay fashion show, and children’s workshops in such topics as manga drawing and making origami flowers. Guided tours of several of the nearby areas, including the C.V. Starr Bonsai Museum, with also be available.

With book signings by manga author and illustrator Misako Rocks, the celebration looks set to have something to appeal to everyone – especially those who are interested in Japanese culture. It is also a good opportunity for everyone in the family to learn more about another nation’s culture.

It is likely that the organizers of this weekend festival will be working with Brooklyn printing companies to help advertise it throughout the community. They might want to design and print a flyer that can be sent out to everyone in the area through direct mail or inserted in local newspapers and magazines. Flyers are inexpensive to produce and are a highly effective form of advertising due to their flexibility in distribution.

Sukura Matsuri will take place at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden from April 27 – 28 from 10:00 am – 6:00 pm each day. For more information, call 718-623-7200.
