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.

  • The high wide is a symbol of the city of Fukuoka, originally intended to be queue in a place of wide and after that, it was found that there was a huge gap in the top of a pile of houses, and there was a difference in imagination, but perhaps it was a little more than a life of the neighbours, and in the days when we saw many office workers coming to this cult to go to work, If you come to high, you can go to the road.
