The Japanese Embassy in Cape Town says it is eager to continue to partner…

The Japanese Embassy in Cape Town says it is eager to continue to partner in the development of South Africa and the rest of the continent. Consul, Yasushi Naito donated seeds from a tree, which survived the nuclear bomb of Hiroshima in 1945. The seedlings were then cultivated at the Kirstenbosch Botanical gardens in Cape Town. Naito planted the Ginkgo Biloba tree at the Afrikaans Language Monument in Paarl. Naito says it symbolises the spirit of a resilient friendship and peace, between Japan and South Africa: “We had seven years ago a devastating tsunami and earthquake, remember, and it was South Africa who came, 45 of them, and helped us, and the people of Japan won’t forget about this. So, in a sense we are sharing it in thanking you for caring about Japan.”
