Spring in Washington celebrates the cherry trees and the beautiful pink and white flowers that bloom in late March. Every year, the 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 in its records many records related to the United States' relationship with Japan.
