The Sakura tree set their roots in the earth, and slowly but consistently live to grow a trunk and branches, and eventually bloom brilliantly, enrich our hearts. This calligraphy reflects our wish to protect and foster Sakura and pass them down to and for future generations.
In our long history, cherry trees have grown alongside the hearts of the Japanese people and have had a unique and mysterious appeal to us all. In partnership with other stakeholders, we who have been born and nurtured in Yoshino will take up the baton that has been passed to us by earlier generations.
Passing on the cherry tree to the next generation
We are working with workplaces around Japan on activities aimed at passing on to the next generation both the cherry tree, whose blossoms are symbolic of Japan, and also the beautiful landscape that has been cherished to this day, especially around Mount Yoshino in Nara Prefecture that has a connection with our founder.
