The U.S. Postal Service and Japan Post jointly issued Gifts of Friendship Forever stamps celebrating the American issuance during the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC. 

The first stamp depicts the Lincoln Memorial with vibrant cherry trees in the foreground, while the second stamp depicts the U.S. Capitol building surrounded by white and pink dogwood trees. The Japanese-designed stamps feature two prominent buildings in Tokyo: the National Diet Building framed by cherry blossoms, and the clock tower outside the Diet Building rising behind a foreground of white dogwood flowers.
