Walk through the torii gates and enter a Japanese landscape to admire the ephemeral beauty of cherry blossoms also known as sakura. Be captivated by the elegant Japanese red-crowned cranes or Tancho that grace the Flower Field alongside pink blossoms of sakura and momo (peach blossoms).

Adding kawaii vibes to the hanami or flower viewing tradition is popular character Hello Kitty, who is making a special appearance at Flower Dome for the first time.

Stroll alongside Hello Kitty as she takes you on her ideal flower viewing itinerary, from posing beside rickshaws to locating the best spot for nodate, an outdoor tea ceremony. Be inspired by the Japanese art of fabric wrapping – furoshiki, with a picnic spread laid out!
