Here enclosed is some pictures of Nawang Tree which has been planted in the garden of our house in Karuizawa, Nagano Prefecture. As we had quite a plenty of snow this year, so we worried about the tree because it is such a very young like Nawang. But the tree was strong enough to start growing and to increase its green. At least once a month, we go and stay there so that we have time to watch its growth and even can talk to the tree, so I will keep informing you how the tree grows.
