Cinnamomum camphora (A-25, others)

Botanical Name

Cinnamomum camphora, Celtis sinensis, Zelkova serrata, others

Tree Donor

Hiroshima Citizen

Date Donated

Spring 1946

Reason for Donation

Although difficult to determine the exact trees, many that stand around the Atomic Bomb Dome were planted by Hiroshima native Fukuichi Kawamoto. Mr. Kawamoto, who lived right in front of the Atomic Bomb Dome, came across countless withering saplings under the debris inside the ruined building. He set up a nursery for the saplings to the north of the Atomic Bomb Dome, eventually replanting them all around the dome. His efforts were featured in a local newspaper at the time.

In 1966, it was decided that the Atomic Bomb Dome would be preserved for posterity, and redevelopment of the surrounding area began the following year. Only six trees, including the Japanese elm (Zolvoka serrata), camphor (Cinnamomum camphora), and Japanese bayberry (Morella rubra) trees, were left standing in the vicinity of the Atomic Bomb Dome so that the building could be seen from anywhere in the park.  The dozen or so trees that were removed were replanted in the north and in the east of the Peace Memorial Park to create a natural sound barrier to filter the sounds of the city out of the park.
