 A supporting post in theDaibutsuden has a hole said to be the same size as one of the Daibutsu's nostrils. Legend has it that those who pass through it will be blessed with enlightenment in their next life.

Sadako Sasaki was two years old when the atomic bomb blown her out of the window. Several years afte she was diagnosed with leukemia and hospitalized on February 20, 1955, and given, at the most, a year to live. Sadako's best friend Chizuko Hamamoto came to the hospital to visit, and  fold a gold piece of paper into a paper crane, in reference to the ancient Japanese story that promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish. Her wish was to heal. Though she had achieved her goal by the end of August 1955, Sadako died on the morning of October 25, 1955 at the age of 12. 

This is our cry. This is our prayer. Peace in the world.
