Takaoka Daibutsu Buddha, Takaoka

(2/5 based on 200+ 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.

  • Use the taxi to go from Takaoka station, the return is about 15 minutes on foot. Outdoor has been enshrined in the premises except the front enters from the side can, so come recommended from the front entrance to the. Pray in a short period of time has a small, but is impressive, I think. Premises are increasingly flying wifi. You can also stamp. Buddha baked they sell in the front entrance, and since then, so delicious! Certainly 120 yen. Cream with red bean paste. One thing is very unfortunate. Rob was like can be visited inside the pedestal, so do not do (free of charge) volunteers, administration officials began rapidly description of the Buddha. And had the points at the entrance to big Buddha saw him didn't you? (The Offertory is PROFS), making incense, Temple "here I don't", was reworked cuttings without permission. And the incense himself after "do you know why brings is the incense? "And hit the Bell" Bell because I know I do? "I" before all I pray, to tell. "Bo" ask me before I do it. "(Suddenly appears and quests can explain, sorry to ask but have no idea of who you are. ) And point to the right visitor "does not wish to hear shrine clockwise. "Such interactions and in front of few people, now want to leave from the description at a quick pace. I have become a shrine not very refreshing to come from far away. To display the nameplate if you volunteer, at the very least "volunteers" and to determine the possible, I want to devise a bit more explanation than what is. Adidas Black Jersey he did lol

  • As one of Japan's three great Buddhas is famous for the Buddha's face is handsome. Certainly compared to NARA and Kamakura Daibutsu damn handsome as well. Takaoka city, by using its technology 30 years that were made took time.
