Watch: The oldest tree in Japan (ARTE)

Tokyo's most famous cherry tree

Discover in Tokyo an ancient cherry tree; the oldest in Japan. Its delicate blossoms and gnarled trunk have inspired and awed generations of artists, and moved its visitors to reflect on its ephemeral beauty as a metaphor for the ephemeral beauty of their own lives. The Tule tree in Mexico, a majestic cypress tree that is the largest in the world and continues to grow, is also celebrated as a silent witness to the years of joy and sorrow of its community.
