Please read (the English below) and support as you are able. Thank you!Flame of Hope Garden in Matsumoto, Japan - The Matsumoto Civilian Times, June 10, 2020

The non-profit organization Earth Caravan, headquartered in Kyoto, started a project in the Koaka quarter in Matsumoto city. It involves the construction of the Peace Pagoda Garden, where the Flame of Hope will be kept burning.
The Flame of Hope is composed of several notable flames, one of which is the Hiroshima Fire, gathered from the embers of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945.
The Peace Pagoda Garden project aims to create a place of peace education in the city of Matsumoto, which has been declared a 'Peace City.' The 75th anniversary after the end of WW2 marks the start of the project, and the Peace Pagoda Garden is scheduled to be completed next year.
Earth Caravan has launched a crowdfunding project to promote the Peace Garden and generate financial support.
The garden is roughly 600 square metres, and is located next to the Jodo-Shu (Pure Land) Wadaji Tao Sangha International Retreat Center. The pagoda that will house the Flame of Hope will be built using traditional Japanese construction methods. A camphor tree (Kusunoki) that survived the 1945 atomic bomb will be replanted in the garden. And a citizens' peace message will be inscribed on the floor.
The Flame of Hope was used at Pope Francis’ mass in Nagasaki and Tokyo last November 2019, when he visited Japan.
Earth Caravan carries the Flame of Hope all over the world to spread the message of peace. The project was born when Earth Caravan brought the Flame of Hope to Matsumoto last August 2019 and placed it at the municipality's Peace Flame monument.
The crowdfunding initiative will continue until July 22, 2020. English information is available at

Shunya Tomari, Director of the Peace Pagoda project, says, “We would like to create peace with as many people as possible. We aim to unify with all others, and not be divided.”
