  • Not too impressive, it is located in the Ueno Park. But like Southeastern or Tibet temple instead. I felt award saw in Tokyo, Japan. Do not like it at all!  more »
  • That the Buddha was built in 1841. Is the Buddha was at the mercy of daibutsuden has been removed in the parks of the Meiji era, fall head in the great Kanto earthquake in the Taisho period, funds cannot be reconstructed during the war except for the face of the army disarmed and, 0/1972 and relief, will be enshrined in the disaster and history. Is a gentle face swallowed all such circumstances. Hiroshi acolyte with the pagoda enshrines Yakushi-like the next. Nokyo-Sho is served at Kiyomizu Temple.

  • Only the face of the Buddha remains at this site, part of the Kanei-ji Temple complex. The Great Buddha was destroyed in the great Kanto earthquake of 1923. Worth a visit on your tour of Ueno Park  more »
