The monument, the burnt tree was discovered in 1-2-7 Nishinippori, Arakawa-ku ( former address 4-3420, 3421 Mikawashima ) where the construction of a new building had started, on August 12, 1991, a half century from the battle of Pearl Harbor, the 46th year from the end of World War Ⅱ.
There were 71 raids from April 18, 1942 to August 15, 1945.
Now the tree that is displayed in this place is the one that was burnt in the air raids from 11 p.m. April 13, 1945 to 2:22 a.m. April 14, 1945.
The bombs dropped were high quality bombs, 81.9t and incendiaries 2037.7t. The damaged area spread 139 places containing Nishinippori. This tree that was burnt in the war makes an appeal for precious life.
Now we should try to build a peaceful country forever under the peaceful constitution.
