What is Kodama Aoimizu?
Kodama Aoimizu is a Japanese art of planting trees with prayer. The name comes from the kodama, or Japanese forest spirits, which are believed to help care for the trees and protect the environment. The art of Kodama Aoimizu is said to connect people with the natural world, promote physical and spiritual well-being, and create a sense of peace.
To perform Kodama Aoimizu, first find an area that has plenty of fresh green space. Ideally, the tree should be at least 10 feet tall and have a straight trunk. Plant the tree in a hole that is about 2 feet deep and 1 foot wider than the trunk. Make sure to water the tree regularly during this process. Once the tree is planted, make a small circle out of white paper using a pencil or pen. In the center of the circle write “kodama” in kanji characters. Next, take some soil from around the base of your tree and sprinkle it over your paper circle. Sprinkle some salt over top of that soil mix. Now take another piece of paper and lay it on top of your soil mix so that it covers all but a small hole on top left side corner (see picture below). With your fingers make small indentations in your second piece of paper where you placed it on top of your soil mix (see picture below). Take off your first piece of paper and do the same thing with it but place it over your salt layer instead
