Hi! Am really interested and would like to know what’s the the cost of the entry ticket and when can it be bought?
Thank u for ur time.

Marie Tsujita Stephenson

Hi Aesha, the Cherry Blossom Festival in Stockholm is free of charge. But bring some money so you can buy food, drink and maybe some Japanese things at the little booths around the trees.

Josie Canlapan Koseki

So exciting! I wish I could there and I can attend the cherry blossom festival. I came from Osaka and I miss the hanami in Osaka Castle. Thank you very much for the good information.
Best regards / Josie

[…] Kungsträdgården, el Jardín del Rey, es conocido por ser una de las zonas más céntricas y con más cafés de Estocolmo, pero también porque este parque cuenta con numerosos cerezos que en primavera explosionan de color y convierten esta localización en algo mucho más hermoso, si es posible. También cuenta con un festival dedicado a esta preciosa flor que se celebra el 21 de abril. […]

I am sure you have the event well organised by now, but if you are interested in having a stand with moku hanga, with images, tools and explanation billboards, I can offer this. Ukiyo-E is one of Japan’s traditional arts and moku hanga is the technique. The images I would show are shin-hangs, done with the traditional technique used to make Ukiyo-E. But I have one Ukiyo-E we could frame and display. Look at moku hanga under my web page: and tell me if you would be interested.

Hi Martin, if you want to exhibit something, you should get in touch with the organizers of the event, Japanska föreningen i Stockholm.

No, the event is free of charge. But the food, drinks and other items in the various booths around Kungsträdgården are for sale, so bring your wallet!
