Event Description
Sakura Matsuri is Japan Studies Student Leaders (JSSL's) largest annual event. Occurring every spring, Sakura Matsuri is a festival held to welcome and celebrate the beautiful cherry blossoms around campus and across the street at the Oregon State Capital. Sakura (cherry blossoms) are entrenched in Japanese culture. The Japanese hold significance to the sakura as a representation of the ephemeral and transient nature of life. Every year, Japan Studies Student Leaders, with the help of many American Studies Program and Willamette University volunteers, hosts this festival filled with food, entertainment, and many cultural activities. Sakura Matsuri has free admission and is open to the Willamette, TIUA, and the general Oregon community.
