More than a century ago, the city of Tokyo extended the kindest of gestures to the city of Washington, D.C.: an incredible gift of 3,000 of its acclaimed cherry trees. Planted along the idyllic Tidal Basin in the nation’s capital, the trees have become the official emblem of springtime in the city, as they annually burst forth in late March and early April in a riot of gorgeous blooms of pink and white. This captivating keepsake book is filled with beautiful photographs, an overview of events and activities, and memorable stories in honor of the National Cherry Blossom Festival.
