The Consul General of Japan presents Mayor Thomas M. Menino and the City of Boston with cherry trees at the Taylor Elementary School in Mattapan. The May 10 planting ceremony was part of the Greater Boston-Japan Cherry Blossom Festival which marks the 100th anniversary of the gift of Japanese flowering cherry trees from Japan to the United States. The original trees, which were planted in Washington D.C., have become a symbol of the close relations between the two countries.
