A famous story about senbazuru is that of Sadako Sasaki (see”Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes” by Eleanor Coerr [1977]).

Sadako was little girl who ws exposed to radiation as an infant when the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. Although she survived the bomb, she was diagnosed with leukemia by the age of 12.

She decided to fold 1000 cranes, hoping that her wish to live would come true. Unfortunately, she only was able to fold 644 cranes before she passed away. Her classmates then continued to fold cranes in her honour and she was buried with a wreath of 1000 cranes to honour her dream.

There is now a statue of Sadako in Hiroshima Peace Park – a little girl standing with her hand outstretched, holding a paper crane. Every year, thousands of wreaths of senbazuru are draped over her statue.

我全家都爱宫崎骏大师的作品。他的影集无论看几次都不会腻。

这是我姐要求我造给她的印章。她是出现在龙猫里草壁五月的妹妹-草壁梅伊。

年仅5岁的她,是个性格活泼、善于观察周遭有趣事物的小女孩,也常因冒失的举动让姐姐五月担心。

据说起源自公元17世纪前后,当时在原始森林密布的瑞典中部达拉那地区,人们多以伐木为生。工人们一旦进入森林,常常是十天半个月,最多甚至要待上半年。伐木工人思念孩子,就有人想到用木头刻一些小玩具,回家可作为给孩子的礼物。而今日,达拉木马已成为瑞典的一种国家象征与标志。

A Dala horse is a traditional carved, painted wooden horse statuette originating in Swedish province Dalarna. In the old days the Dala horse was mostly used as a toy for children; in modern times it has become a symbol of Dalarna, as well as Sweden in general.
