Updated at Sunday, 25 Mar 2018, 11:33
Thousands of Hanoians and tourists enjoy the stunning of the famous cherry blossoms brought from Japan during the 2018 Japan Cultural Exchange Festival, which opened at the flower garden on March 23.
About 50 cherry blossom trees are showcased at the festival. The current cool weather in Hanoi keeps the flower fresh. The cherry blossom trees are arranged and cared by organisers. The 10,000 cherry branches are divided into different sizes, the smallest branches are 1-1.2 metres long, and the longest are 2.5 metres.
The flowers were preserved under a private regime with guidance from Japanese experts to ensure their freshness during the four day festival. In addition to the cherry displays, cultural exchanges with typical Japanese activities have also been introduced, with the indispensible Yosakoi traditional dance in each Japanese festival.
Many people dresses coulourfully and take pictures at the festival. A large number of local people began to arrive from the early morning of March 24 to see the blossoming cherry trees.
Jointly held every year by the Hanoi authorities, the Japanese Embassy to Vietnam and Advanced International JSC since 2016, the event is part of the activities to celebrate the 45th anniversary of Vietnam - Japan diplomatic ties. It targets to introduce the Japanese cultural beauty to locals in Hanoi and connect the people of both sides, as well as the exchange of experience and cooperation in the field of culture, tourism and economic development between Hanoi and Japan.
The festival is expected to help Vietnamese people to understand better about Japanese land, culture and people in addition to boosting collaboration in culture, tourism and economy.
