About Tree of peace 

In Hiroshima, there is a tree that has grown roots in the earth and continues to live strongly even though it was exposed to the atomic bombing.

For 75 years, it was said that not even grass or trees would grow. The trees that sprouted from the burnt ruins, which were regarded with anxiety, have grown large and continue to heal and give hope to the people of Hiroshima.

 

These trees are still carefully cared for, watched over, and nurtured.

One part of the care is pruning. We wanted to regenerate the precious trees we cut down at that time without throwing them away and make them into something that would inspire peace, love, and the power of life.

With this thought in mind, we launched the Peace Tree Project, believing that it will lead to peace.

 

Imagine looking at the grain of the trees....

Trees do not move, but we can feel their various atmospheres. You may be able to feel the history and love that these trees have been following to watch over people.

And the original trees are still alive. We put symbols on our products so that you can recognize the original wood of the woodwork. You can go back to the roots of the product you hold in your hand.

 

We hope you can feel the resilience of trees that have survived the fires of war, and the preciousness of life that envelops and extends its branches even after wounds have been sustained. I hope that this green will never disappear again.

Misasa Shrine & A-bombed camphor tree (No.k-1)

Misasa Shrine, located in Misasa-town, Nishi Ward, Hiroshima City, has long been revered as the head shrine deity.

 

On August 6, 1945, an atomic bomb blew out the walls of the shrine and burned down all the buildings and 300-year-old trees.

 

After the war, the building was gradually rebuilt. In the fall of 1945, we planted camphor tree seeds, raised seedlings, and devoted ourselves to the restoration of the shrine and its trees.

 

In 1955, Mr. Shuzo Nakata, a resident of the town, gave us a camphor tree that survived the atomic bombing.

 

Today, the shrine's woods have been restored to the point where the devastation of the atomic bombing is hardly felt, and the A-bombed camphor tree is carefully protected as a sacred tree in the shrine.

camphor tree(No.k-2)

A-bombed camphor tree at Tachibana transport company.
Tachibana transport company located in Minamikannon, Nishi-ku, Hiroshima City, was founded in 1953 by Yoshio Tachibana.
There is a large camphor tree on the premises.


A camphor tree was planted on Tachibana's grounds as a river marker in the early Meiji period.
When the atomic bomb was dropped on August 6, 1945, a 90-year-old camphor tree was also damaged. 
Yoshio Tachibana returned from the battlefield 20 days after the atomic bomb was dropped. 


He said he walked from the burnt-out Hiroshima Station, past the Atomic Bomb Dome, to his house, which had been tilted by the blast, using a camphor tree as a landmark.

The branches of the camphor tree on the side facing the Atomic Bomb Dome fell,
Over the years, the remaining branches have grown.


There was talk of cutting down the camphor trees, but we decided to leave the camphor trees planted by our ancestors and pass them on to the next generation.
March 2005/The bomb-exposed camphor tree was designated as “Hiroshima City Preserved Tree No. 31.”
