Moomin’s Tree


Moomin’s Tree is a roughly 1,000-year-old giant camphor in the grounds of Gosho Hachimangu Shrine in Koga City. The tree has a knot that looks like Moomin, the famous character of a Finnish novel and cartoon. The knot appears to be climbing up the tree and looks just like Moomin! The contrast between the huge tree’s dominating presence and Moomin’s sweetness is humorous in a way. In addition, there are some other enjoyable, oddly-shaped trees, such as Moomin’s Den, Turtle’s Tree, Tree of Mutual Aid, and the Tree of Mutual Concessions.
