Youth Cherry Tree
A total of 170 cherry trees are planted throughout the Soka Gakkai Headquarters Complex, blooming as one in the spring. The majestic tree before the Center, which Ikeda Sensei named “Youth Cherry Tree,” has stood tall since the headquarters was relocated to Shinanomachi in 1953. The tree continues to flourish, inspiring all those who come to visit and symbolizing the bold and proud spirit of Youth Division members everywhere.
