Sakura Matsuri 2013 at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Visitors flocked to Brooklyn Botanic Garden over the weekend to enjoy the cherry blossoms, a custom known in Japan as hanami. One of the highlights of the season is the Sakura Matsuri festival, which celebrates both traditional and contemporary Japanese culture. Some people watched taiko drumming and folk dance performances, took part in origami and manga workshops, and dressed as anime characters for a cosplay fashion show. Others just chilled out under the canopy of pink flowers and enjoyed the sunshine.
