“As a child in Japan, I used to go to a temple and write out a wish on a piece of thin paper and tie it around the branch of a tree. Trees in temple courtyards were always filled with people’s wish knots, which looked like white flowers blossoming from afar.”
With the help of One Tree Planted, we will turn wishes into real trees. Join us and plant more trees for Yoko at the link below.
