These may be challenging times, but at Gardens by the Bay, flowers never stop blooming. We are standing with Singaporeans to stay positive and resilient, and the Gardens remains open for families and friends to connect with one another and find joy in nature amidst green open spaces.
This sakura season, we invite you to enjoy the ephemeral beauty of cherry blossoms right here in our Flower Dome, along with a host of complementary programmes and promotions.After all, there is nothing like a little bit of nature to soothe the mind and spirit!
1. Be enamoured with springtime blossoms and follow the adventures of Momotaro
Springtime blossoms are filling the Flower Dome in shades of pink and white.
The Sakura Matsuri floral display features over 500 cherry and peach blossom trees, including perennial favourites like the award-winning cherry blossom cultivar Prunus ‘Accolade’ with beautiful shell-pink blooms and the classic Prunus ‘Yedoensis’ with elegant white flowers.
Take photos with the Gardens’ Sakura Instagram filter and be surrounded by graceful falling sakura petals, just like in the movies!
As you admire the blossoms, keep a lookout for Japanese folklore hero Momotaro, a boy born from a peach, and his three adorable animal friends.
2. Immerse in Japanese culture
Complementing the floral display are free cultural programmes like Japanese tea ceremonies, taiko drum performances and kendo demonstrations.
There are also Experience Areas in Flower Dome where you can try out exciting Sony Playstation games or participate in a Danbo colouring workshop.
For fans of Japanese pop culture, a colourful weekend awaits at Anime Garden at The Meadow. With appearances by celebrity cosplayers, anisong concerts, J-pop performances, anime screenings and even fortune telling, there’s something for everyone!
3. A unique Hanami Experience
