This Bonsai has been alive for 402 years - despite the terrible bombing it experienced in 1945, during which a little over 140 000 people died in Hiroshima.
This bonsai, planted in 1625 about 3 kilometres from Hiroshima by a certain Yamaki, has passed through many generations of their family.
In 1971, the head of the family decided to offer the bonsai to the National Bonsai & Penjing Museum in the United States, explaining a few years later the true story of this tree. The museum curator initially kept it quiet before revealing it on the web.
Take a look at the video above to see this incredible tree's extraordinary evolution.
