Date Change: Spring Back to Harvard: Tokyo Hanami / Cherry Blossom Viewing

Please join us for Tokyo's first Spring Back to Harvard event at this year's cherry blossom festival!

***Please note, the hanami is postponed until Sunday, April 2, due to rain. We will be emailing photos from the event to those who register via the link below, so please RSVP!***

Spring Back to Harvard is a new series of events sponsored by the HAA and taking place across the globe this spring. These events aim to reconnect Harvard grads and their families with local Harvard alumni through fun, family-friendly activities, with a focus on alumni between six and twenty-five years after graduation (but all alumni are welcome!). 

For the Tokyo event, bring your picnic blanket, food, drinks and games and your Harvard Crimson gear!  We will meet at Komaba Park ( on Saturday, April 2, 2017; 11:30 AM – 4 PM (or however late people want to stay) – we promise, despite taking place on April Fool’s Day, this is not an April fools’ joke. We will be joined by a vibrant group of other schools' alumni, including Georgetown, UCLA, Princeton, USC, Dartmouth, etc. Please look out for the Harvard banner for our group!
