A-bombed Ginkgo tree, Anraku-ji, Hiroshima



70th Anniversary of the Atomic Bombing, August 6, 2015.

A-bombed Ginkgo tree at Anraku-ji, Hiroshima, Japan, August 2014.
2160 m from the blast. The temple was restored in 1948. A hole was made in the roof to create space for the tree to grow. This Ginkgo has grown from a cutting taken from a 12th century tree at Zenpuku-ji Temple in Tokyo. The cutting was taken to Hiroshima during the Edo period.
