“Kaki Tree Project Brescia” visits Japan

26 people from the planting places in Brescia, Italy came to visit the mother the tree in Nagaksaki during March 30-April 10. They visited the mother tree, the A-bomb remnants, the tree doctor; Mr. Ebinuma’s field where the bombed Kaki Tree Jr. s grow, and they also enjoyed the Japanese custom “Hanami (cherry blossom viewing)”.

Since most of the members were school teachers, we received a lot of gifts and art works from Italian children. It was a wonderful opportunity to re-realize the tight bonds that the Kaki Trees have connected between us.
