Raised in a family of Yoshino woodcutters, our founder loved nature above all else and had a deep love for the spirit and culture of Japan. The company’s DNA made up by our founder, that honors the spirit of the Japanese people, will be passed down to the future by our involvement in cherry trees through Daiwa Sakura Aid, especially the cherry tree preservation work at Mount Yoshino and the Sakura Project.
As expressed by the concept of "live in harmony with the soil", a cherry tree cannot survive without soil. The activity has received ongoing support from a large number of people. By passing on the cherry tree to the next generation in partnership with these supporters, Daiwa House Group is also working to pass on a culture and tradition of which Japan should be proud.

We organize concerts in partnership with artists who support our activities to transmit the Japanese spirit to the next generation through involvement in the protection and preservation of cherry trees.
The concerts are also used to ask for donations to the cherry tree preservation work.
Every spring, large numbers of people come to Mount Yoshino to view the Shiroyamazakura cherry trees that grow on the slopes of the mountain. Each year we engage in fundraising for cherry tree preservation in partnership with the Yoshinoyama Hoshoukai (preservation association).
People who make donations are presented with copies of Daiwa House’s Sakura pamphlet, Hitohira booklet, and a cherry tree clear file folder.
