Portland boasts a number of Japanese cherry trees, which typically beautifully bloom during the month of March. These trees can be found along the Willamette River in Tom McCall Park, drawing in sightseers and picnickers every  Spring.

In addition, there are of course amazing cherry trees at the Portland Japanese Garden (PJG).  On March 24 (Sun) from 11AM to 2PM, JASO (the Japan-American Society of Oregon) and the PJG will host “Sakura (Cherry Blossom) Sunday” to welcome in the cherry blossoms.  This year’s events will include children’s activities, light snacks, Japanese tea tasting and more, including traditional Japanese music.
