青少年センター西側[シダレヤナギ]
  • Weeping Willow (Moto-machi)

The weeping willow in Moto-machi is the closest surviving hibaku tree to the hypocenter, at a distance of merely 370 meters. Despite having its trunk snapped in the August 6 blast, the roots were spared, and it is from these roots that the weeping willow grew once again.
