A look into the Japan House with Michael Darin

By Acacia Hernández

The Arboretum, located right outside the Japan House, had a lot more visitors this past weekend than normal. The cherry blossoms, alongside the Japanese gardens, were at full bloom which provided an additional sight to see during Mom’s Weekend.

Families pose alongside the cherry blossom trees for pictures on Wednesday, April 7.

Michael Darin, the Education and Experience Coordinator at the Japan House, spoke to Good Morning Illini on Friday’s show about private tea ceremonies and how much longer we can expect to see the cherry blossoms at their fullest.
