We spend most of the day at the National Cherry Blossom Family Day Festival at the National Building Museum.
For a parent this event is perfect with its many activities for kids and since it’s free. Lots of arts and crafty activities with lots of crayons and markers, gluing, cutting up paper, coloring, painting, and so on.

Kids always love someone in a huge costume.
One of the cooler activities was making a cherry blossom using popcorn as the blossoms.
There’s an activity making a chashitsu tea house.
In Japanese, free-standing structures specifically designed for exclusive tea ceremony use, as well as individual rooms intended for tea ceremony, are both referred to as chashitsu. The term may be used to indicate the tea room itself where the guests are received, or that room and its attached facilities, even extending to the roji garden path leading to it.
