Quick Facts:

The cherry trees lining the Tidal Basin, Potomac, and Washington Channel in Washington D.C. are a symbol of the enduring friendship and cooperation between the United States and Japan, and are celebrated annually by the National Cherry Blossom Festival. The first two Yoshino cherry trees donated by Japan were planted by a Cincinnatian – First Lady Helen Taft, wife of President William H. Taft. In a simple ceremony on March 27, 1912, she and Viscountess Chinda, wife of the Japanese ambassador, planted the trees along the north bank of the Tidal Basin in West Potomac Park.
