Come listen to a bilingual story in Japanese and English!

This month's theme is featuring the story, When the Sakura Bloom


In Japan, spring is one of the most iconic seasons. Why? Cherry Blossoms, of course! When the Sakura Bloom sheds light on the cultural importance of cherry blossoms and how the people of Japan see cherry blossoms. This is a story about change and how change is important in our lives.

日本では、春は一番象徴的な季節の一つです!なぜって?もちろん桜の季節だからですよ!「When the Sakura Bloom」という物語では桜の文化的な重要性と日本人の桜に対する思いが描かれています。このお話は「変化」についての物語です。私たちの暮らしの中で「変化」というものがいかに重要であるかお話します。

Co-sponsored by the Center for East Asian and Pacific Studies at the University of Illinois and The Urbana Free Library. You can attend in-person or by watching a live stream of the program on Zoom. Register in advance to receive a link to watch the program online.
