  • Close you'll see your appearance dressed as Buddha's divine. Love from an outlet next door looks. It is so lifelike. To get into the park with extra legroom charges apply. But I want it in 1 degree. I represent ponds, flower beds, and French world so. Place in the body. And nearly interfered and Buddhist sutras. Annual Festival of the golden week is like s. Guests can enjoy a magic trick or simple entertainment.

  • Driving and Ami premium outlets so close, even from several kilometers away form was seen. Anyway great! This was the first impression. What is historical in the great Buddha of Nara and Kamakura now seen is not put in as the lookout point, very pleasant memories. It is something we want to try again.

  • You can go up in the elevator, into the inside of the statue. For the holidays, was 40 minutes waiting for an elevator. Commune with rabbits, goats, sheep, wild boar, Petting Zoo behind the statue.

  • Tallest Buddha status in Ibharaki prefecture. We can see Tokyo sky tree and tower from here. If you are planning from Tokyo you can plan along with Hitachi Seaside Park trip.
  • Really interesting and beautiful place. There's a museum inside the Buddha and you can get a nice view from there.
  • Beautiful place, but you cannot fully experience it without coming every season to see the flowers accordingly
  • awesome sight its one of the most impressive things ive ever seen.
  • One can find peace here ,,!!
