Cherry Blossom Festival – Hanami macuri 2022
Hanami is a Japanese spring festival associated with sakura blossoms – traditionally associated with the search for peace and tranquility. It has been celebrated in Prague’s Dejvice for twenty-three years under the auspices of the The University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague. This year we participated in this festival for the first time with an aikido demonstration.
The venue is a university campus, the visitors are mainly students – so our demonstration was mainly performed by members of the youth section, who then stayed at the festival to have fun until late in the evening.
