Hanami: Rome's Botanic Garden celebrates spring cherry blossoms

Rome celebrates Japanese spring cherry blossoms at Orto Botanico.

The Botanic Garden Museum of the Sapienza University of Rome, with the support of the city's Japanese Cultural Insitute, organises 'Hanami all'Orto Botanico' on the weekend of 20-21 April.

The popular annual event is dedicated to the blossoming of the cherry trees in the Japanese Garden of Rome's Botanic Gardens in the Trastevere district.

The Japanese Garden was designed in 1990 by renowned garden designer Ken Nakajima who was also behind the design for the gardens at the Japanese Cultural Institute in Rome in 1963.

The 2024 Hanami programme includes numerous cultural initiatives in celebration of the cherry blossoms, from talks and guided tours to workshops and performances.

The Botanic Gardens are open to visitors both days from 09.00 to 18.30.
