(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners brought meditation, Chinese music performance, and dragon dance to the 23rd Cherry Blossom Festival in central Japan on April 4, 2015.

The cherry blossoms were at their peak at the Suigen Park in Toyota, in Aichi Prefecture, east of Nagoya. Many visitors who came for the flowers and performances also enjoyed watching the Falun Gong exercise demonstration.

Mrs. Kido, with the organizer, Yagawa & Mikawabushi Forum, visited the Falun Gong practitioners at their performance. She gave them traditional Japanese snacks that she had made, as a token of thanks on behalf of the audience.

Falun Gong practitioners also distributed informational materials about the practice and the persecution ongoing in China.
