  • Than the great Buddha of NARA is in the Echizen great Buddha has been overwhelmed by the size, but otherwise no feel nothing. Still made 20 years little, would resonate like a great Buddha of Nara not any old feel, not at all the only invisible just large object. Becoming Buddha elephant back, leave a fork-lift truck, so was disappointed none of your business. There Aun image not made of wooden buildings and concrete? Of the crack is large and didn't say careless management. It is not imitating the temples of Nara and Kyoto than we thought and the temple architecture and see if I would go again.

Take a look at the other face of deep Buddhist world savor.

  • Anyway all scales are big! Historic buildings would not build a temple of this scale in Japan right now you can't become quite gorgeous and the Interior and exterior. Because I think more tourists, is known for being close to the Dinosaur Museum, Katsuyama Castle Museum with Qing Dai Temple should appeal city is more.
