On March 25th, 2015, 30 Friendship Blossoms dogwood trees were planted at Munakata YURIX, the largest public multi-purpose complex facility and area in Munakata City. Munakata YURIX is the city’s symbol facility and over 1 million people visit it annually. Munakata City is dedicated to promoting international understanding among its citizens through exchange with foreign people. In 2012, U.S. Consulate Fukuoka worked with U.S. Embassy Tokyo and U.S. Navy Sasebo to donate picture books in English for the children of Munakata City. The planting of the dogwood trees symbolizes the strong cooperative relationship between Japan and the United States.
