Gardens by the Bay Sakura Matsuri

The Gardens by the Bay’s Sakura Matsuri: Tale of the Peach Boy Floral Display officially started last Friday (6 Mar).

The installations feature Momotaro, a boy born from a giant peach, whose tale was inspired by Japanese folklore.


If you want to learn how the Japanese survive winter, then check out these Gassho-style farmhouses. These small establishments have thatched roofs that may withstand heavy snowfall.


A trip to Japan isn’t complete without passing through these torii gates, which are a common sight in Japanese shrines.


The best part is undoubtedly the quintessential hanami flower viewing experience. Guests can stroll in the gorgeous flower domes and enjoy the cherry blossoms in full bloom.
