The cherry blossom is the national flower of Japan. Samurai warriors were fond of cherry blossoms. The short life of the cherry blossom mirrored their duty to die for their master at a moment’s notice. In 1910 the Japanese sent cherry trees to Washington, D.C. as a token of goodwill and friendship. In 1952 America sent cherry trees back to Japan to replenish their collection following World War II. Sakura means cherry blossom or cherry tree (pronounced: sah koo rah).
