Voices of Support for Japan
Hanami Picnic in the Japanese Garden of Hasselt

The BJA Friendship Committee is happy to invite you for its traditional Hanami (cherry blossom party) at the beautiful Japanese Garden of Hasselt.
Join us with your families and friends for this typical Japanese event, where everybody gathers to picnic under the blossoming cherry trees to admire the fleeting beauty of nature and celebrate friendship!
