Setagaya Ward

On April 14, 2013, 53 Friendship Blossom dogwoods were planted at Futako Tamagawa Park, in Setagaya Ward, Tokyo. Known as “Dogwood Town”, the symbol of Futako Tamagawa is the dogwood tree, and there is an annually held dogwood tree festival held there. Futako Tamagawa is also home to a dogwood donated by the U.S. 100 years ago, and a dogwood tree donated in 2000 by Ohio Senator Robert Taft, the great-grandson of President William Howard Taft.
