Hanami is the Japanese custom of flower viewing. The transient splendor of trees in bloom inspires people to come together for festivals, picnics, and strolls beneath a canopy of petals.

Vision for the Hanami Line

In Japan and around the world, cherry blossom festivals represent the beautiful and transient nature of life. Imagine pale petals from cherry trees being carried by spring breezes. Imagine couples strolling and families picnicking beneath a billowy canopy of pink and white blossoms. Imagine a place of such intense beauty that admirers from around the world travel to Sacramento to experience it. That is our vision for Sakuramento and the Hanami Line.
