In 1912 the Mayor of Tokyo gave a gift to a U.S. metropolis, honoring the lasting friendship between the United States and Japan and celebrating the continued close relationship between our two cultures. For many years this gift has been celebrated annually. In 1994 the event turned into a two week festival to accommodate more than a million people who come to attend.

What city am I in, what was the gift, and what festival am I attending?

Washington D.C., the gift was 3000 Cherry Trees, the festival is the National Cherry Blossom Festival. This game is now closed. Thank you for playing!

    DC at the Cherry Blossom Festival? I assume that means that cherry trees were the gift. (I’m guessing because I remember that the cherry blossom festival is happening but I don’t know the history.)

    I love traveling vicariously through you. You’re making my wish list longer with some added specifics.

    Have a great trip! I’m sure you always do!

    Wow, this sure looks different than when we were there a short 4 weeks ago! A whole different feel, a lot less people. We were able to walk this same path with only an ocasional jogger.
