Rare and old lantern located between the cherry blossoms facing the tidal basin. I had to research a bit and it has a twin in Ueno, Tokyo. So cool, worth a quick check

Even if the period is very busy, the later. Looks even greater when the cherry trees are in full blossom.

The lantern is a good segment to remember that the trees were offered by Japan.

I wish it was Cherry Blossom Season when I was there, unfortunately, it wasn’t. However, it is still a beautiful, reflective and calming space in the monument area.

It’s kinda looks unloved. But read the plaques it’s actually pretty cool. Japan gave us tree seeds back in 1912 they were planted and the lantern marks this historic spot and occasion.

The Japanese Lantern is a facinating monument on the north side of the Tidal Basin near the MLK Memorial. In this location in 1912, the first cherry trees in Washington, D.C. were planted as a gift from Tokyo, Japan. The grove surrounding the lantern is beautiful and peaceful. Few people were in this area despite the busyness of Memorial Day Weekend. We sat for a while on a bench facing the Tidal Basin and enjoyed the scenery. It is a great place to step away from the popular areas along the National Mall.

Nicely located in the National Mall near Tidal Basin, so the surroundings are well worth a visit in themselves. Here you pass on several other tours in the large area.
