On 7 October 2014, a planting ceremony was held with some 50 participants, including Botanical Garden Director Dr. Jože Bavcon, Ljubljana City Deputy Mayor Ms. Jelka Žekar, and Ambassador of Japan to Slovenia H.E. Mr. Shigemi Jomori. Five ginkgo and hackberry saplings, about 40 to 80 cm tall, were individually replanted into a larger clay pot by Mr. Jomori, Ms. Žekar, Slovenian National Commission for UNESCO President Stanislav R. Pejovnik, Hiroshima University Professor Shin-ichi Uye, and University of Ljubljana Professor Ivan Svetlik. The saplings will eventually be planted on the university campus after new buildings are completed.
