Cosplayers, manga fans and cherry blossoms at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Ian sez, "The Brooklyn Botanic Garden is hosting a two-day celebration of the 'rite of spring,' with a celebration of all Japanese culture — ancient and modern. It's remarkable to see all the cherry blossoms in a park in the middle of the city. It's even more remarkable to see hundreds of cosplayers enjoying the gardens and displaying their talents for thousands of fans and mundanes."

Sakura Matsuri–Japan comes to Brooklyn
