Peace on Earth. . . The particular piece of earth where the white, Indian-style pagoda shown in our April ’05 issue is located is Gotemba City, Japan.

The temple, located in Peace Park, contains some relics of the Buddha presented to Gotemba City by India’s first prime minister, Pandit Jawaharial Nehru.

One reader identified the photo correctly by the deadline: FRANCES KAKAZU of Colton, California, who said, “It brings back fond memories of my visit to the site two years ago this month.”

Our thanks to John P. Melton of Palo Alto, California, for sending us the picture.
