The Botanical Garden held an event on 6 August to commemorate the Hiroshima bombing in 1945. A ginkgo, grown from seeds from Hiroshima, was planted as a symbolling peace tree by H.E. Ambassador of Japan to Lithuania Toyoei Shigeeda and Botanical Garden Director Audrius Skridaila. Lanterns, made by Lithanian children, were launched in a nearby pond, accompanied by traditional Japanese music. Mrs. Michiko Shigeeda organized an ikebana workshop in the Garden museum. The workshop began with a minute of silence for the victims of Hiroshima, and Mrs. Shigeeda also presented a book with pictures of Hiroshima after bombing in 1945.
