.‘Cherry Blossom Festival’ at Cupertino Memorial Park

Decades after the end of World War II, Yoshio Yamamoto, mayor of Toyokawa, Japan, extended a peace offering to the South Bay city of Cupertino. A beautiful sisterhood bloomed, and the seeds of the annual Cupertino Cherry Blossom Festival were sown. Since 1983 the festival has honored Toyokawa with a weekend of Japanese festivities. Attendees will savor sushi and sake, and enjoy cultural presentations—including Ikebana flower arrangement, taiko drum and dance demonstrations, and showings of traditional calligraphy. Furry friends, especially Shiba Inus and Akitas, are encouraged to attend.
