「角館桜まつり 2020」中止について

This year's (2020) "Kakunodate Sakura Festival" has been canceled from the perspective of preventing the spread of new coronavirus infections. "State of emergency" (April 8th to May 6th) has been issued to 7 prefectures, and some prefectures have requested refraining from going out to other prefectures.

We ask for your continued cooperation so that we can overcome this crisis and enjoy the "Kakunodate Sakura Festival" next year (2021) as before.
