Cultural exchange with Japan at Cherry Blossom Festival

I saw an interesting mural at the Tidal Basin today as part of the Cherry Blossom festival, a “Japan America Friendship Mural: sharing gifts of art with kids in Japan”.  I don’t know how the mechanics of the exchange works.  But the concept certainly sounds interesting, given world history, Japan’s aging population, and now our alliance with Japan that is too close to North Korea.

This sort of exchange probably isn’t possible with poorer, warlord-run countries in Africa.
