The cherry blossoms have bloomed, and spring is in the air!
Talented local photographer Motoya Nakamura has a stunning photo and video exhibit called Sakura Sakura.
Sakura is the Japanese name for cherry blossom trees. Over the course of a year, Nakamura captured the beauty of the cherry blossom trees at Waterfront Park and the Japanese American Historical Plaza.
The trees were gifts from Japan. They evoke cultural wonder, and symbolize Japanese-American history and friendship that is unique to our region.
Sakura Sakura is funded in part by the Regional Arts & Culture Council. It’s up through June 14th at the Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center.
