Join us for an author talk with Ambassador John Malott, former President & CEO of the Japan-America Society of Washington and author of Mrs. Taft Plants a Tree, How the Cherry Blossoms Came to Washington. 

Ambassador Malott will tell the story of the people who were involved, and how they came together to bring the trees to Washington.  Ambassador Malott will also tell the story of the location—Washington DC—and how the trees transformed our city at the beginning of the 20th century.

Registration deadline for sake combined tickets: Sunday, April 25.

Note: Sake is available for pick up at the designated location in Van Ness on Monday, April 26 between 5 and 7 pm. (You will be notified of the exact pick-up location upon your registration.)

This event is part of Beyond Tokyo series in Sakura Matsuri 2021 Year in Bloom. In this series, we promote regional prefectures in Japan and introduce their culture. For this event, we picked Dewazakura Oka (720mL) sake from Yamagata prefecture to pair with Amb. Malott’s cherry blossom story.

About Dewazakura Oka sake:

Oka (桜花) in English literally translates to Cherry Blossom Flower. With a rice polishing ratio of 50%, this sake has a lovely floral aroma but feels light and crisp in your mouth. This sake is best served Chilled. Enjoy it with a glass of white wine!
