Japanese stamps for the centennial of the Washington, DC cherry blossoms

The Japan Post Office has issued commemorative stamps for the centennial of the Washington, DC cherry blossoms. The sheet of ten 80-yen stamps is selling for 800 yen at all post offices in Japan. Notice that it shows five varieties of cherry blossoms (五色桜). That’s what was sent from Adachi Ward, Tokyo in 1912.
