The plantings of cherry trees around the Jefferson Memorial originated in 1912 as a gift of friendship to the People of the United States from the People of Japan. In Japan, the flowering cherry tree, or "Sakura," is an exalted flowering plant.

1965, the Japanese Government made another generous gift of 3,800 Yoshino trees to first lady Lady Bird Johnson, wife of President Lyndon Baines Johnson, who was devoted to the beautification of Washington. Many of these are planted on the grounds of the Washington Monument. Lady Bird Johnson and Mrs. Ryuji Takeuchi, wife of Japan's Ambassador, reenacted the planting ceremony of 1912.

This beautiful silk scarf is a tribute to that everlasting gift of friendship. 

Wear it to enhance your attire or frame it for your home or office!
