Sakura Matsuri April 12, 2014

Sakura Matsuri is just around the corner! Saturday, April 12th will be the 54th Annual Sakura Matsuri in Washington DC. They close off Pennsylvannia Ave to have the annual Japanese street festival to celebrate the Cherry Blossom Season. I’m extra excited this year. The blossom are scheduled to be at their peek during the Matsuri. The last two years the blossoms were closed by the time the Matsuri came around due to the super warm weather. I have a bunch of new and limited Cherry blossom themed hats available this year as well.

I have a bunch of new hats like my Meowth hat! It’s re-imagined from my first Meowth hat with more details and better color matches.

The money helps pay for the closures of the roads, additional security, and assists the Japan-America Society in throwing this great festival every year. You can go to to purchase tickets. The festival runs from 10:30am-6pm rain or shine. We will be next to the Jpop stage in section J14-18.
