On April 5, 1979, President Jimmy Carter greeted the Cherry Blossom Princesses in the White House Rose Garden. Two years earlier, he commented on the significance of the Cherry Blossom Festival: “This is a good occasion for us also to remember our friends overseas. Prime Minister Fukuda was in town just recently. And just the fact that the cherry blossoms bloom every year is a true indication of friendship that exists not only among our own people but with our friends in Japan.”
