Having been passed from generation to generation for a thousand years, the cherry trees of Mount Yoshino are a treasure not only for Japan but for the whole world.
With the Shiroyamazakura cherry trees of Mount Yoshino at risk to factors such as environmental change and the trees' loss of vigor, we are working to preserve them for the next generation.
The cherry trees of Yoshino are a famous sight that is emblematic of Japan. They have been known since antiquity, having been written about by the poet Man'yoshu.
