The University of Washington's Yoshino cherry trees are in prime bloom this week. In 1962 the trees were transplanted on the Quad section of the campus.



In 1912 then Tokyo mayor Yuko Ozaki donated cherry trees to various cities in the United States to mark the friendship between the two countries.

Thirty four were planted in Seattle's Washington Park Arboretum.



Later thirty-one of these trees were transferred onto the university campus. There are still many of these hundred trees which are still there to be enjoyed by everyone.
