Annual planting of one cherry tree for each store in China at Tongji University

Every year, JINS China plants cherry trees at Tongji University, a school that attracts students and visitors from all over the world. We plant one cherry tree for each JINS store in China. Cherry blossoms are a symbol of spring in Japan, and enjoying their beauty in various ways, such as flower viewing (hanami), is part of Japan's culture. We hope that the trees we plant will provide a taste of that culture while creating a place of relaxation. In September 2018, we held a tree planting ceremony and planted 20 cherry trees. The following year, in March 2019, we planted 120 saplings to match the number of stores we have opened in China, bringing the total number of cherry trees to 140. We plan to continue planting trees for each new store, every year.
