Bamboo Ohanami Day in Takehara on April 7th!!

Bamboo Joy Highland Park is a wide-open green space outside of central Takehara where many cherry trees reside, and like the rest of Hiroshima Prefecture, the sakura reach full bloom around late March to early April. Tourists can catch these pink and white beauties during the day or at night from March 23rd to April 13th, when a light-up event is held between 6:30 and 9:00 p.m. On the 7th of April, however, Bamboo Ohanami Day will take place at the park, which means entertainment on stage, food trucks, a flea market, and lots of fun to be had. Those who bring their dogs and register beforehand with the office inside the gymnasium can also make use of the dog run so that their beloved pets can also get into the springtime festival mood!
