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.
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.
Implementation of the the Hanami Line is reliant upon funding. Your donation brings us a step closer to making this vision a reality. The Sakuramento committee is charged with raising private and in-kind funds to implement this project. No public monies will be used.
In 2013, the Tree Foundation solicited proposals to bring this vision to life. Learn more about the winning design and the people behind this project.
We seek to plant at least 200 cherry trees and to install
pathways, lighting, art pieces, and special historic features along
the Sacramento River between Old Sacramento and Discovery
Park. Find out how you can help us bring Sakuramento and the Hanami Line to Sacramento.
