Ambassador Fujisaki with ISH residents from around the world

International Student House (ISH), along with Ambassador Ichiro Fujisaki of Japan and the National Cherry Blossom Festival (NCBF), celebrated dual centennials of Japan’s gift of cherry trees to Washington June 1 and the 100th anniversary of ISH’s historic main building at Dupont Circle.  Not deterred by the torrential downpour, guests gathered in the mansion’s great hall for Japanese food and music performed by members of the Washington Toho Koto Society.  NCBF donated a cherry tree for ISH’s garden commemorating the friendship between the U.S. and Japan and ongoing educational exchanges.  ISH welcomes graduate-level students from around the world.
