The annual National Cherry Blossom Festival kicks off this past weekend in Washington DC, and runs through April 12. It marks the 96th anniversary of Tokyo's gift of 3,000 cherry trees to the capital city. Cherry blossom festivals are held all over Japan, and the flower heralds Spring, represents love, and illustrates a basic tenet of Japanese philosophy: perfection is fleeting (love, too).
