History

As a sign of peace and solidarity between the US and Japan, Mayor Yuko Ozaki gifted 3,000 cherry blossoms to President Taft. The first trees to be planted were done so by First Lady Helen Herron Taft and Viscountess Chinda (wife of Japanese Ambassador) in the Potomac Park on March 27. Then, in 1981, due to Japan's gracious outreach, the US returned the favor when a devastating flood hit the island country.

 

National Cherry Blossom Festival

Every year a festical is held to celebrate the lasting relationship between Japan and the United States. Many gather not only to praise Japan's outreach of friendship, but to bask in the beauty of the plentiful cherry blossoms.

 

Purchase this ornament as a way to commemorate your visit to D.C. during the Cherry Blossom Festival.
