The Cherry Blossom Festival, a tradition in Washington D.C.
The cherry trees descendents of those that were given as a gift in March 1912 from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo city to the City of Washington as a symbol of friendship between the United States and Japan flourish to the maximum splendor by the second week of April.
The view is magnificent as you can see in the video and pictures. It is not easy to find a spot to park the car but many make the effort to come. The cherry blossom every year make the difference in D.C.
