On Oct. 2, the 60th anniversary of Ikeda Sensei’s first visit to America, the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board, Neighborhood Associations and local SGI-USA members dedicated the Cherry Tree Peace Grove at Loring Park. The peace grove honors the three founding Soka Gakkai presidents, Tsunesaburo Makiguchi, Josei Toda and Daisaku Ikeda. In March, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey named Sensei an honorary citizen of the city.
