This tree survived the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, about 2,160m from the hypocenter. 
At 8:15 a.m, August 6,1945,Hiroshima was burned by the blazing heat of the atomic bomb. It had been rumored that"nothing will grow in Hiroshima for 70 years", so when people saw new buds sprouting,they were encouraged and were able to have hope for their future. It is alive!
