Bonsai Tree Survives Hiroshima Bomb

A four-hundred-year-old bonsai tree survived the Hiroshima bombing! It was over three hundred years old at the time of the bombing in World War II. Japan actually gave it to the U.S. for its bi-centennial, along with fifty-three other bonsai trees. They all reside at the U.S. Capitol.
