​About

This “Peace Statue” keeps praying for the world peace, standing on the base of the “Prayer Stones” collected by through the cooperation of 45 countries all over the world.

It keeps praying for peace for people all over the world beyond transcending nationality, and so it is independent from of any particular religion.

Since this “Peace Statue” of children stands uniquely facing the north, which is believed in Japan to be the unlucky direction in the country, it is said that the statue drives bad luck away from people who pray for peace.
