Distant Visions

May 1950
Time;5/29/1950, Vol. 55 Issue 22, p25
The article looks at the different vision of Yukio Ozaki, former mayor of Tokyo and a cabinet minister in Japan, from Japanese citizens with respect to U.S. mediation in the Russo-Japanese War. Ozaki felt grateful for the U.S. mediation that he sent 2,000 Japanese cherry trees to the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Washington in 1909 but were infested. In 1911, he again sent 3,000 cherry trees that were planted along Washington's Tidal Basin. In a peace treaty with the U.S., Ozaki expressed his determination to make the Japanese understand his visions.
