Takaoka Daibutsu Buddha, Takaoka
(1.9/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Counted among the most iconic Buddha statues in Japan, Takaoka Daibutsu Buddha stands almost 16 m (52 ft) tall and dates back to the beginning of the 20th century. At the nearby shrine, you can see the wooden head of a much older Buddha sculpture, which stood there for centuries before burning down in a great fire. Located near the center of town, the current bronze statue makes an ideal backdrop for a few quick photographs.

  • 離開公園後走不遠就能到高岡大佛。 不過很多寫了"三大""五大"的景點有時, "其實不怎麼樣。" 的感想又出現了。 雖然說繞過來也花不了多少時間,而且也有可拍之處。 
  • You can visit in between I had spotted in the middle of the night I stopped by, but is open at any time. In watching over the city of Takaoka Daibutsu great Buddha, there is a お地蔵 さん的.

  • I went because I had heard and Japan's three great Buddhas. In the city, the place was smaller than I had imagined. Parking is insufficient, is in charge of information and staff. I was surprised to get below the big Buddha statue. That the Buddha was a small firm.
