Prime Minister Fumio Kishida met Alessandra Evangelista, the 21-year-old American Cherry Blossom Queen, and others at his office on Thursday.

Kishida mentioned the gift of cherry tree seedlings he gave during his official visit to the United States in April, saying: “I would like to promote efforts so that our country’s sakura can be further enjoyed and ties between Japan and the United States can be strengthened. .”

During the meeting, Kishida also received a letter from US President Joe Biden.

The queen is chosen at the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival held in Washington, commemorating Japan’s donation of 3,000 cherry trees to the United States in 1912.
