Michio Horikawa: Persimmon update on August 6th



本日は広島原爆忌です。我が家にあるNYの砂入博史さんのTree Projectの柿の木の今の姿です。5月頃の嵐の後一部の葉が枯れ落ちてどうなるか心配したのですが、また新しい葉を出そうとしています。安心しました。写真を良く見て下い。世界平和を祈ります!!安保法案反対!!

THE HAPPY END - Alberto Gesualdi's Planting a Hibaku Tree in Argentina - It is a Hibaku camphor tree seedling!

Dear Hiroshi

Today we received the tree from seeds of Peace.  Mr. Bernal and Mr. Matayoshi were at the ceremony.

We will keep the seedling temporarily at our inner garden, then to take it out later to a special place built for it, finally to have it at our Tigre new factory!

Thank you for your help and commitment throughout all, it has been valuable time with you on our sideJ!

Kind regards,







Planting a Hibaku Tree in Argentina: Tree Project text piece - a special mention on the Poetry Foundation's blog

A crucial new issue of Evening Will Come is out, compiled and edited by Brandon Shimoda in remembrance of the 70th anniversary of Hiroshima and Nagasaki...

Tree Project text piece - a special mention on the Poetry Foundation's blog

"Also captivating is this epistolary exchange (with a genuinely touching ending) between an Argentinian man requesting Hibaku tree seeds from Japan’s Tree Project, so he may “nurture and plant in the new site of our company, at Tigre County, Buenos Aires Province, Argentina.” The delivery of the seeds through customs and without governmental assistance proves so tricky that the once-simple project turns into somewhat of a saga, with the repetition of the Japanese proverb “Everything arrives for those who wait,” pictures of their children, architectural plans, and discussions about film."

Hi Hiroshi,

Thanks for your recommendations re; Hiroshima :)

I think I saw my little guys papa while I was there. What a truly magical and special place, I will go back again, next time for a longer period of time. I really, really loved it there!
