Green Legacy Hiroshima was established to safeguard and spread the seeds and saplings of Hiroshima’s A-Bomb survivor trees worldwide. It is hoped that many partners will join this initiative and become active ambassadors in their countries of Hiroshima, its peace message and its green legacy.

グリーン・レガシー・ヒロシマは広島の被爆樹木を守り、その種や苗木を世界中に送り届けるために設立されました。多くのパートナーがこのイニシアチブに参加し、自分たちの国における広島と平和のメッセージ、「緑の遺産」の大使となってくれることを期待しています。

In early December 2023 our partner, Professor Gerardo Avalos at the University of Costa Rica, hosted a webinar focusing on the Hiroshima hibakujumoku. His lecture covered GLH’s efforts to distribute seeds from the A-bomb survivor trees worldwide, along with the narrative of these seeds in Costa Rica.


In early November, we were delighted to welcome to Hiroshima our partners from Oregon, working to promote the impactful Sunny Day Initiative (founded by Hideko Tamura-Snider).

GLH Regional Seed Hubs

San Diego Botanic Garden (SDBG) in San Diego, California and the College of Agriculture, Food & Rural Enterprise (CAFRE) in Northern Ireland

We are delighted that the SDBG and CAFRE have agreed to become GLH regional seed hubs. We hope their help will facilitate sharing A-bombed tree seeds with more partners in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Latin America.


Compilation of historical and other information on Hiroshima’s Hibakujumoku

GLH has started to search and compile archival information on the Hibakujumoku. This is work in progress and an iterative process, and we welcome all additional contributions to help us ensure the veracity of the information on the history of Hiroshima’s A-bomb survivor trees.

Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria
Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria - March 2024

We are delighted to learn that Jo Brennan of the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria could receive today a batch of hibakujumoku Ginkgo seeds, hand delivered by GLH partners Virginia McNally and Dominic Napoleone of the University of Melbourne. Under a shining sun, a small handover ceremony was set against the backdrop of one of the Gardens' flourishing Ginkgo specimens. The seeds are currently undergoing cold stratification in the Gardens' nursery as they prepare to be sowed. We extend our gratitude to all involved for their efforts to make this exchange happen.

V.F.F. Research Institute Mare Nostrum e.V.
V.F.F. Research Institute Mare Nostrum e.V. - January 2024

In June 2017 GLH sent seeds to the Research Institute Mare Nostrum, who since have diligently documented the process. The Mare Nostrum website features images of the seeds, and the flowchart below, detailing application, arrival and sowing of seeds. It also has a detailed technical analysis that includes step-by-step images and explanations for germinating the seeds. Gratitude for the care and efforts of Peter Bauckmann from Mare Nostrum and Shuichi Hamatani from the Hiroshima Botanical Garden.

Kendal at Oberlin
Kendal at Oberlin - January 2024

GLH is happy to welcome Kendal at Oberlin, a retirement community near Oberlin College, as a new partner. Their wisteria was cultivated by retired professor Dr. David Benzing since the spring of 2019, from a cutting of the wisteria in Oberlin College's Science Building courtyard. Horticulturist and focal point for GLH Rachel Duncan anticipates its inaugural bloom in a year or two. Winter photos taken in mid-January attest to the tree's hardiness. The plant is part of The John Bartram Arboretum collection (Kendal at Oberlin’s arboretum) with accession #1569.

School of Biology, University of Costa Rica
School of Biology, University of Costa Rica - December 2023

In early December our partner, Professor Gerardo Avalos at the University of Costa Rica, hosted a webinar focusing on the Hiroshima hibakujumoku. His lecture covered GLH’s efforts to distribute seeds from the A-bomb survivor trees worldwide, along with the narrative of these seeds in Costa Rica. Titled “Árboles de la Paz de Hiroshima” – “The Trees of Peace from Hiroshima”, the webinar provided insights into the many ways Prof. Avalos, his students and colleagues have found, to share the message of peace and love of nature that the trees and GLH represent. Additional information is available on the project’s Facebook page, and an article about the initiative can be found on the University of Costa Rica’s website (all in Spanish).

International Committee of the Red Cross - June 2023

We are excited to share an update on the Gingko tree planted at the Geneva Headquarters of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) by Green Legacy Hiroshima. This hibakujumoku was planted in 2013 and has grown beautifully and is flourishing. Its remarkable growth at such a symbolic site embodies resilience and hope, a reminder of ICRC’s humanitarian efforts and also the work and unique contribution of Dr. Marcel Junod to Hiroshima.
