Produced by the Japan-America Society, Sakura Matsuri is the largest one-day celebration of Japanese culture in the United States and is proud to be the grand finale of the National Cherry Blossom Festival. Performers and vendors travel from all over the country and the world to Washington, DC to share their love of Japanese culture and traditions with festival attendees through art, cuisine, and performances.

Sakura Matsuri tickets can be bought in advance online and at the gate on the day-of for $10 (children 12 and under always free). Ticket sales on the day of the festival are cash only. There will be special entrance lanes for pre-paid ticket holders, so festival-goers are encouraged you to get your Sakura Matsuri tickets online before arriving at the event.
