Japan Student Association Proudly Presents, Ohanami.
April 3rd, University Recreation and Wellness Center 2nd floor, Multipurpose room 5, 4-6 pm
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Late March, early April is the time in Japan when spring comes, and the cherry blossoms start to bloom. It is the time when children go to school for the first time and the time when students graduate and start their first job. It is a season of new beginnings, all ushered in with the blooming of the cherry blossoms. However, right before this lull, is the time when everyone in Japan takes a moment to appreciate those blossoms, for they bloom and fall in only two weeks.
In the spirit of the season, we at Japan Student Association are holding our version of the annual cherry blossom viewing, traditionally named “Ohanami” (お花見). April 3rd, from 4-6 p.m. We will be holding a special viewing in the wonderfully windowed multi-purpose room 5 at the University Recreation and Wellness Center. For the occasion we will be having traditional Japanese music performances from Minneapolis local Koto group, Sakurakai with an opening act by our very own Kai Matsuhashi’s father on Shakuhachi, a traditional Japanese flute. We also get the privilege to hold an art exhibition by Minneapolis based Japanese artist, Negishi Yuya. Come and enjoy the music and eat FREE Japanese food on the mats we have for you to sit on and after have the opportunity to view some of the best Japanese art in town.
Also, make sure to remember Negishi Yuya will be selling t-shirts as well as various works of art on top of the pieces being displayed!
