Moscow State Universityul. Leninskiye Gory, 1, Moskva, Russia, 119991
A Hibaku-jumoku planting ceremony was instigated by Dr. Sergei Shaposhinikov, former staff of the UNITAR Hiroshima Office and currently a professor at the Moscow State University (MSU) Business School. Master-gardener Mr. Chikara Horiguchi, representing both GLH and UNITAR Hiroshima Office, visited Moscow for the events at MSU and Ostafyevo State Museum. The second-generation Ginkgo sapling—now growing on the 264-year-old campus--greets MSU Business School students every day as a reminder of peace, life, and hope. In three languages - Japanese, Russian, and English - a plaque is set in front of the sapling, telling the story of Hiroshima’s special trees.
