Northwest of the Washington Monument is a small ground hosting more than 340 cherry trees. Imagine a photo of these blushing bushes against the backdrop of the towering marble monument! Brilliant isn’t it? It will be less less crowded also.

On the west side of the Capitol Hill and the Upper and Lower Senate Park, you can find a few lots of Yoshinos. If you want a couple of closed and marked out spots of the bloom, then check out the Japanese American Memorial to patriotism during World War II.
