There’s a month-long cherry blossom festival in Sydney you can’t miss

Daniel San Japanese

In Manly, you’ll find Daniel San’s, the beachside hovel to go for Japanese delights and, this month, all the cherry blossoms you need outside of Land of the Rising Sun.

It’s transforming into springtime Japan, called ‘Sakura Sakura! A Cherry Blossom Festival’ with a floral wonderland and perfectly pink menu, for all your social media needs.

But, social buzziness aside, don’t let that detract from the intended quality of the food!

The festival begins on 1 September, the first day of spring, running until 7 October with pink-inspired, cherry blossom special dishes, cherrylicious cocktails and a fabulous floral photo wall.

There’s a menu that spans Sakura mochi ball skewers, Sakura vege burgers, pink pork bao buns and even Sakura sushi. Monday to Friday Daniel San is dishing up food and drink deals including $20 Kirin beers + Sakura burgers and they’ve even promised to bring back the utterly indulgent Taiyaki waffles, this time stuffed with Nutella and a pink twist.

Sakura Sakura! A Cherry Blossom Festival runs from 1 September – 7 October. Check it out here.
