Chiyoda Ward: Yukio Ozaki Memorial Foundation

Between April 2013 and October 2015, 20 Friendship Blossom Dogwood trees were planted by the Yukio Ozaki Memorial Foundation at Kensei Kinenkan, Chiyoda Ward, Tokyo. Yukio Ozaki served as mayor of Tokyo and gifted the cherry trees from Japan to the United States that inspired the Friendship Blossoms Dogwood Tree Initiative. The Yukio Ozaki Memorial Foundation was established in 1956 to spread Ozaki’s ideas and philosophy.
