Takaoka Daibutsu Buddha, Takaoka

(1.9/5 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.

  • Located not far from Takaoka station as it was. Little confusing but can be offers a few free parking. Pedestal is a small Buddha sitting can be seen in the corridor around. There was a statue of Amida Sanson and Buddhist. Things in a short period of time is rather small, so it is possible.
