Japanese Garden 1937.

Preparing the Nanking region:
 Wash blades on both sides, Cut limbs that intrude, Clear ghostly
Planting Process:
Dig holes in the acidic soil Sow root balls or bury heads first, Next,
smother with ashes of the blackened earth, Then water
 from the bloody Yangtze River. In the end, tangled roots of
weeping willows.
