Planet Word celebrates the National Cherry Blossom Festival with a Wishing Tree. Visitors will be invited to participate in the ‘Wishing Tree’ a self-guided drop-in activity, centered around the Japanese form of poetry called Haiku. Following the step-by-step instructions provided, visitors will practice writing their own haikus on pink paper petals and hanging them on the trees. Over time, a small row of cherry blossom trees will begin to form, like those we see lining the Tidal Basin.

All Planet Word visitors are welcome to participate. Reserve a general admission pass in advance to ensure you get your preferred entrance time to the museum.
