It's one of the springtime spectacles marked each April at the home of the National Fruit Collection, Brogdale in Faversham.
The Hanami Festival is a traditional Japanese blossom festival, which celebrates the blossom bursting into life on the fruit trees of the site each April.
Although the trees will still bloom, visitors won't get to see it this year as the site is closed, so organisers are staging #onlinehanami on Instagram, encouraging people to share pictures of blossom trees in their gardens.
The festival involves guided tours of the orchards in full bloom, in the school Easter holidays with Japanese cultural demonstrations, drumming and sword displays, and a Japanese tea ceremony.
Brogdale has also launched Green Space Bingo to keep kids busy, when they would normally be starting their Easter school holidays and visiting events and venues across the county.
The downloadable bingo asks families to spot beetles, blossom, snails, sparrows and other nature in their gardens or on their daily walks and to take a photo and share it on Facebook tagging Brogdale here.
Operations manager Sara Smile said: "We’d love to see what you’ve discovered. Brogdale is a charity that works with children to educate them on fruit, gardening, wildlife, nature, farming and cooking. Although we’ve had to shut up shop for now, we’re still here to help keep the young ones entertained with on-line activities and information."
