Throughout the event participants can take part in two hands-on workshops. Artist Shoko Iwata and her two assistants, Jerry Gross and Vivien Huang Kwok, will lead a workshop in traditional Japanese floral art from the Sogetsu School of Ikebana. Running simultaneously, weaving artist Yukako Satone will instruct participants on how to weave a cherry blossom on a SAORI loom, a contemporary Japanese hand-weaving method. Participants will be able to take home their celebratory cherry blossom arrangements and woven flowers. At 2:30, IchiFuji-kai Dance Association will present a classical Japanese dance performance. Also called Nihon buyo or nichibu, it is a classical performing art that grew out of and is very similar to dance of the Kabuki theatre.

In keeping with the spirit of the day, visitors can contribute to a community “wish tree,” by writing messages of hope and adding them to our collection. PAC will then mail the wishes to a central repository of wishes from around the world, becoming part of a greater project organized by Yoko Ono. For more information visit
