The cherry blossoms may have already peaked, but the National Cherry Blossom Festival is just getting started. The Sackler Gallery on the National Mall has Hokusai: 36 Views of Mount Fuji through mid-June. The exhibition features what’s widely regarded as the best work by the artist who is widely regarded as Japan’s best.
