Takaoka Daibutsu Buddha, Takaoka

2.0
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.

  • Who have too much time on a leisurely look at the picks. Take a picture, it is wasted. Inside, seeing as every detail of the Buddha. So I think, less than 10 minutes ' walk from Takaoka station, featured.

  • Within walking distance from the train station. Great Buddha of Nara and Kamakura Daibutsu great Buddha of Takaoka is told. It is smaller than I had imagined. Go in from the foot of the statue of Buddha. Tone down side by side while Zodiac Palm-sized Bell, knocking those edges with fingers and different sounds. It is a town of the bronze Buddha.

  • The great Buddha of Takaoka is one of Japan's three great Buddhas in the lit at night. It is a large Buddha stands out even from a distance.
