The Sakura Days Japan Fair is one of the biggest celebrations of a month-long festival (April 3 – April 29) celebrating the cherry blossom and the spring season, and it’s going down this weekend.

While attendees of the fest can expect amazing spectacles and live performances celebrating all things Japanese culture, we are really most excited about the food that will be up for grabs on April 14 and 15.
