Protecting the cherry trees at Mount Yoshino, the birthplace of our founder

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.
