The Camphor trees at Sanno Shrine were once thought to have died during the blast of the Nagasaki atomic bomb, it lost its leaves and the upper branches were destroyed but, miraculously it started to grow new again and remained a strong part of Nagasaki’s history. It’s almost poetic and I felt a sense of emotion run through me. Even the trees refused to give up and continued living. It’s definitely worth the visit. It’s about half an hour walk from Nagasaki Station, and about a 10 minute walk from Urakami Station.
