Cherry Blossom Week Activities
Sister Cities annually partners with the Consulate General of Japan in Nashville and the Japan America Society of Tennessee for a line-up activities celebrating Cherry Blossom season. For the third year Sister Cities collaborated with two amazing ramen chefs for the Annual Ramen Showdown. The chefs prepared "dueling" specialty ramen and served 250 bowls to the first arriving. The event sold out again, raised funds for Sister Cities of Nashville and raised awareness of our partnership with Kamkara, Japan. Sister Cities also hosted the Cherry Blossom Walk, a 3-mile walk on the Cumberland River Greenway led by Mayor Briley and Consul General Kobayashi. A bit of rain didn't dampen the spirits this year for the walk and the festival, where Sister Cities had a booth to showcase our sister city ties to Kamakura.
