The Shofuso Japanese House and Garden in Fairmount Park.

A sake garden, presented by Parks on Tap, will return to Shofuso Japanese House and Garden in West Fairmount Park as part of the 2019 Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival.

Visitors can enjoy the Japanese tradition of ohanami, which simply translated means flower viewing, but refers to people coming together to drink and eat under cherry blossoms.
