Mr. Torasaburou Yamashita used to climb this oak tree in his childhood. Altough the trees were burned out due to the a-bomb explosion, it brought forth buds again. However, keloid scar on the tree caused erosion by rainwater, and made air hole inside of the tree. Mr. Yamashita has been trying to reinforce the tree with steel tubes and ropes.
