Itami City: Itami Municipal Library

In 1912, Japan gifted cherry trees to the United States. Understock grown in Itami was used for this present. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of this event, a descendant of those trees, now growing in Washington, D.C., was planted in the courtyard of Itami Municipal Library.

On 25 March 2013, one Friendship Blossoms dogwood was also planted in the courtyard of Itami Municipal Library alongside the cherry tree.
