Donated Trees in Peace Memorial Park

The Legacy of Peace Trees Donated from Home and Abroad

The verdant trees in Peace Memorial Park are a symbol of the restoration of Hiroshima following the damage and destruction caused by the atomic bomb. Amongst these trees are many that were donated from across Japan and overseas; in the lead up to the development of Peace Memorial Park in 1954, the Mayor of Hiroshima reached out to mayors across Japan asking for donations of trees. This was the catalyst for donations from across Japan, as well as from overseas.

The powerful ideas and hopes of those who donated the trees and those who cared for them before us are conveyed through these trees and it is of great importance that we continue to protect them as symbols of both restoration and peace.   

We hope that you will use this page to share the history of these donated trees far and wide, continuing their legacy well into the future.

Provided on this page is information about those trees whose background and other details have been collated from surviving City documents and from records and memories kindly supplied to us by residents.

We will update and share further information here as we continue collecting and collating the stories behind donated trees in Peace Memorial Park. If you have any information about donated trees, we would love to hear from you.

Explanatory Plaque Design (High School Student Collaborative Project)

The explanatory plaque and logo were designed by five high school students: two second year students from Hiroshima Municipal Moto-machi High School and three second year students from Hiroshima Municipal Hiroshima Technical High School. The students reached their designs through discussions about how they felt during field-studies at Peace Memorial Park and what they wanted to express. Their design concepts are described below.

 

Explanatory Plaque Title

The title The Legacy of Peace Trees Donated from Home and Abroad was decided upon as a way to continue to covey our gratitude for donated trees for years to come.

Design Goals

Brightly colored paper cranes are a common sight throughout Peace Memorial Park, and while they are an example of traditional Japanese origami paper craft, nowadays they are seen as a symbol of peace, folded in many countries across the world as a prayer for peace. Hiroshima, known as the Peace Culture City, receives copious amounts of folded paper cranes every year from across Japan and the world.  

The paper crane is used as a motif in the design of the explanatory plaques. Both the donated trees and paper cranes share a common concept: our wishes for peace and for connections with people across the globe. This concept is expressed through the vibrant composition of multicolored cranes. Furthermore, through the use of many large and small cranes in flight, the design expresses the desire for peace and the hopes for the future that are conveyed from Hiroshima.

Design Goals

The verdant green trees in Peace Memorial Park and along Peace Boulevard are symbols of peace and of restoration: they were donated from across Japan and from overseas to Hiroshima where it was said nothing would grow for 75 years following the bombing of our city.

Each and every tree conveys the wishes for peace from people the world over. They are a way for us who live in Hiroshima to deepen the friendships and connections we have with those who visit our city.

This logo employs the letters of the word Peace. The P represents the trunk of a tree and the E, A, C, and E represent people. In addition, the multicolored shapes express the human spirit of overcoming the differences of ethnicity, nationality, religion and culture, and coming together with mutual respect and compassion. It also expresses the spirit of devoting yourself to peace throughout your entire life.
