Yoshino Sakura Cherry Trees were dedicated to the Red Wing Park in honor of Sershin and Yuriko Hamada and in commemoration of 40th Anniversary of USA DNBK Bushin Kan Dojo and in the spirit of goodwill and lasting friendship between Miyazaki and Virginia Beach, and the people of Japan and the United States of America. We pray the beauty of cherry blossom embraces the heart of all people with hope of tomorrow and peaceful happiness in life.
