  • The giant Buddha takes your breath away. I was mesmerized by the Temple. The giant Buddha Feet were also spectacular. You can feel the sacred energy here. Be sure to check the hours, as on my last vis...  more »
  • Kannon is the Goddess of compassion in Buddhism, and this site is dedicated to the dead of world war two. You can see the large image of Kannon from afar, and as you enter the site, you will see her f...  more »
  • Very spiritual Temple which is operated by monks--the huge statue of Buddha perched across the pond – several memorials for the victims of WW2 and freaks - not a must but a few minutes to relax and the introspection of the Carnival next door (old Kyoto)

  • Not much here, but it's only 300 yen and it's right between some touristy areas and while it's not ancient like a lot of the other stuff to see, the statue is still pretty impressive. Inthe back there are stairs to go up into the statue where they have some wood carvings and such worth checking out. There were warnings for monkeys inside the monument area but we didn't see any in March. Probably safer to zip up all your stuff though before going in.
  • 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.
  • cool buddha status
  • 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.
  • Modern sculpture not worth ¥300, entrance through the parking lot - with the corresponding heat in summer...
