The cherry trees here in Washington DC were a gift of friendship from Japan in 1912.  Three thousand trees of several varieties were planted on the Northern Bank of the Tidal Basin and in Potomac Park.   From this gift comes the annual Cherry Blossom Festival, a festival of color and the beginning of spring .
