The arrival of beautiful pink petals of the Japanese Sakura, or Cherry Blossom Tree, celebrate the arrival of Spring around the world. In the Northern Hemisphere, the Sakura leaves arrive in their native Japan and throughout the Northern Hemisphere from mid-March to mid-April. The tree has served as a main goodwill ambassador for the nation of Japan which has donated saplings around the world. Washington D.C., which first received hundreds of Sakura from Japan in 1912, now has thousands which line the monument -filled Tidal Basin along the Potomac and celebrates the arrival of Spring with a month-long Cherry Blossom Festival, which opens with a huge fireworks display.
