We invite you to be inspired by the lovely cover design of this journal which depicts trees and flowers from a reproduction of an art piece created during the rise of the former Japanese capital city Edo (now Tokyo). Enhanced with embossing and subtle gold foil highlights, it makes a special notebook or diary which takes pen and pencil equally well.
Spring in Washington celebrates the cherry trees and their beautiful pink and white flowers that bloom in late March. Every year, Cherry Blossom Festival performers put on a colorful show right in front of the National Archives steps. The majority of the trees are located near the Tidal Basin, where they are most popularly viewed. The Japanese cherry trees were a gift from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo City to the city of Washington on March 27, 1912. The National Archives holds many records related to the United States' relationship with Japan.
