Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park

November 10, 2015 

Since 2000, Hiroshima has been independently carrying out the Dogwood 2001 Project. Citizens have raised approximately 4,000 dogwood seeds and saplings donated by the American people, promoting Japanese-American friendship and exchange. In November 2015, 70 Friendship Blossoms dogwood trees were planted at Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, marking the 70th anniversary of the atomic bombing, symbolizing hope for everlasting peace.
