In addition to the mentioned, there will be rock concerts, traditional folk music, unplugged western music, and dance performances, bicycle rallies, taekwondo demonstrations and storytelling sessions. Visitors can also carry their golf kits to participate in an amateur golf tournament. The organizers have also announced a photography competition with the cherry-blossom theme.
