The lantern was carved 360 years ago and was first lit in 1651 to honor the third shogun of the Tokugawa period and was given to the City of Washington as a gift in 1954, as a symbol of friendship and peace between Japan and the United States. It is lit only once each year during the National Cherry Blossom Festival. (Photo credit: NICHOLAS KAMM/AFP/Getty Images)
