Join Mark H and Miyako Taiko for a special performance at the Tidal Basin!
Nestled under the Cherry Blossom trees, this ceremony includes remarks from top US officials and Japanese diplomats as well as traditional music performed by the Toho Koto Society of Washington DC and the Washington DC Choral Society, and of course, taiko! Our performance takes place before the official ceremony begins, so please plan to join us at 2:00pm.
The National Park Service is currently predicting Peak Bloom will happen right around this date, so it’s likely to be a beautiful but potentially crowded day at the Tidal Basin. Plan to take public transit (if you’re taking Metro, Smithsonian Station is the closest) and give yourself plenty of time to get there!
