You’re invited to a night time cherry blossom viewing and an outdoor anime film screening during Sydney’s Cherry Blossom Festival


The word ‘yozakura’ means night time cherry blossom viewing. It’s a traditional event held nightly in Japan during the annual cherry blossom season, and now you’ll be able to experience this event right here in Sydney.  

Sydney’s Cherry Blossom Festival at Auburn Botanic Gardens will be letting guests wander the gorgeously illuminated Cherry Arbour at night, experiencing the famous cherry blossoms lit up in all their pink glory. Just think of all the Instagram opportunities!  

Running for two nights only, this special Yozakura will be available for a strictly limited number of guests. Friday August 18 has sold out but a limited number of tickets are still available for Friday August 25. 

Following a tour of the cherry blossoms, guests are also invited to enjoy an exclusive anime screening in the floral gardens: the body-swapping, time-shifting anime Your Name (Fri Aug 18) or the award-winning kaiju film Shin Godzilla (Fri Aug 25). Tsuru food truck will also be there, serving tasty Asian street food for all Yozakura guests.
