Japanese Friendship Garden and Gaiser Student Center
In Japan, the fleeting beauty of the cherry blossoms–or Sakura–represents the frailty of existence–a brief explosion of color and brightness for the duration of their short life. As early as the seventh century, the blooming of the cherry trees was marked by a celebration with food and family under the trees.

At Clark College, the annual Sakura Festival welcomes spring, honors a historic gift, and celebrates an international friendship. Join us for this celebration on Thursday, April 13, 2017! We will begin the celebration under the cherry trees (weather permitting) honoring Mr. John Kageyama, the donor of the cherry trees. We will then continue the festivities in the Student Center with dance performances, Taiko Drumming, display, display and activities tables as well as cookies and tea.

The event is free and open to the community. Please join us!
