  • The temple itself has not much special. However, anyway, it is impressive to see the enormous statue of Buddha that is inside the temple. In addition, the views from there, especially at dusk, are impressive.

  • Don’t pay into see this attraction. I’ve see so many ‘Giant Buddha’ on my travels. Yip, it a well carved statue, but you can see it from outside the gates without having to pay a single Yen. I think b...  more »
  • A large statue that you can see from a distance. But if you go into the temple you can breathe the atmosphere of the place: peace, serenity, meditation ... It depends what you are looking for in a "journey": live it soaking into the reality of the country or how many "I was there!" The best memories we have them if we live it.

  • Worth a quick visit. Tribute to the unknown soldier is not well-maintained at all which is very surprising specially from a Japanese standard point of view.
  • Modern sculpture not worth ¥300, entrance through the parking lot - with the corresponding heat in summer...
  • For 300 yen to enter it was really nice. You get an incense to place down. The giant Buddha is really nice and there are a lot of small buildings around. You can go inside the main temple from the stairs at the back to see a lot more statues/icons. To the back right side there is a world war 2 memorial as well for the unknown solider and it has names of lots of other country's soldiers who passed during the war. There is also containers of sand from the different countries involved in the war. A nice place to see.
  • The entrance fee is cheap and you get one incense to burn for the victims of the wars. It's a solemn place. Especially at mornings.
  • I loved this temple because of the magrstic buddah sculpture, definitely worth visiting
