A special event was held for the Musashino Sakura Festival on Sunday, April 1st, 2018.

The cherry trees within the R&D Center and the History Center were opened to the public on Sunday, April 1st, 2018 to coincide with the 26th Musashino Sakura Festival sponsored by Musashino City.
Last year, the cherry blossoms were in one-third bloom, and this year, they were past full-bloom. Although it’s hard to catch the right timing, we were blessed with good weather this year, and many people came to the History Center. Thank you very much!
