What is Japan Festival? In 2012, the first Japan Festival Boston was hosted, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the friendship gift of cherry blossom trees from Kyoto (the sister city of Boston) to Washington D.C. The Japan Festival Boston gives us a chance to share our culture with the Greater Boston area, and we have been expanding this festival each year. The festival is completely organized by Volunteers (more than 380 volunteers in 2017), and supported by many sponsors and contributors of fundraising.
