by: L.E. Baskow, The Akebono Cherry Trees along Gov. Tom McCall Waterfront Park show their blossoms. The trees, planted in the 1970s, entice visitors to enjoy the art of hanami, the Japanese tradition of cherry blossom viewing. The trees were chosen as a link to the Japanese American Historical Plaza within the park.
