The Mayor of Tokyo gave the United States of America the young plant of the cherry tree in those days for several years from 1909. It was the opening of the American dogwood in Japan that it was given Tokyo City as the return favor in 1915 by U.S.A. and became famous as a tree of the Japan and the United States friendship. This flower of the spring is very beautiful, but also the autumn colored leaves and fruit are beautiful also. This flower word is "Please accept my thought"
