Japan in Washington Spring 2008

cherry blossomsワシントンの中にある日本

Spring is slowly but surely coming to Washington, DC.

The most obvious signs of that are the yellow forsythia and pink cherry trees that were coming into bloom around the city.

At right is the National Cathedral, just prior to Easter, with a willow cherry gracefully bending in a garden just outside the nave.

Other signs of Japanese presence in the capital are the many tourists enjoying the strong yen--and the ubiquitous sushi bars and other Japanese restaurants.

Following a visit to the Cathedral, we headed down to Georgetown to a sushi bar near the intersection of Wisconsin and M Streets.

The staff was nearly all Korean and the food was delicious.
